On Saturday, Sept. 7, The Toronto Poetry Project, the people behind the wildly popular Toronto Story Slam, will present a screening and live performance inspired by the life and art of Tupac Shakur.

Over 20 years after his death, Tupac Shakur endures as one of hip-hop’s most iconic figures and its most powerful enigma. Guided by the beloved rapper’s own words, this posthumously released “self portrait” helps demystify the charismatic—yet often contradictory—persona of the West Coast souljah poet, tracing a life story self-defined by “ambition, violence, redemption, and love.”

Featuring never-before-seen concert footage, interviews and home movies, the Oscar-nominated film Tupac Resurrection is a deeply authentic look at a brilliant and rebellious voice whose voice changed music—and, by extension, pop culture—forever.

The event features a pre-screening spoken word performance by Eddie Lartey and Jayda Marley which will be introduced by SPIN El Poeta.

The show starts at 6:30 p.m. and tickets can be found on the Hot Docs website.
