Love Beats Rhymes (RZA, USA, 106 min.)
Preceded by a short film from the HCCI/Tribeca Teen Filmmaker Bootcamp. In partnership with ImageNation.
When struggling rapper Coco enrolls in a poetry class, she thinks her rhymes will impress her teacher, Professor Dixon. Instead, Dixon challenges Coco to seek real meaning in her lyrics, setting her on a journey of discovery that takes her through rap clubs and poetry slams, leading her to find her true voice—and true love—in this uplifting movie.

Music: Performance from surprise special guest artist.

Sponsored by City Councilmember Bill Perkins
