Mixtress X

MOCAD’s Plastic Dreams film series is pretty rad. It’s all about vinyl enthusiasts and the lengths they’ll go to for their record collection. This week they’re screening Mixtress X, which explores hip-hop and particularly the unique contribution that female DJs offer the genre. More eloquently put, “While excavating the history of unsung women DJs and charting the course of the hip-hop movement from a gendered point of view, Mixtress X seeks to provide an uncensored platform for these underground and mainstream women artists who have been transforming their self-images within global hip-hop movement.” Coolest of all? A question and answer session with the film’s director, Daty Kaba, will directly follow the screening. Doors open at 7 p.m., film begins at 8 p.m.; 4454 Woodward Ave., Detroit; 313-832-6622; mocadetroit.org; tickets are $5 or free for members.
