A smoke-filled journey across the lives and careers of groundbreaking, genre defying Hip Hop group, Cypress Hill. Their unique sound was built on a movement rooted in true authenticity: from cultivating the flower, to smoking it, to rapping about it, their sound is forever burned into the musical landscape of Hip Hop. It’s been 30 years and they are still as relevant as ever.
Trailblazers beyond the herb, they legitimized Latino rappers at a time before Hip Hop was in every home across the globe. Told through the eyes/lens of photographer, former tour manager and friend Estevan Oriol, the film is an intimate exploration of the famed yet underappreciated rap icons, and a story of a brotherhood that has withstood the test of time.
“Entertaining, energetic, better-than-it-had-to-be documentary Cypress Hill: Insane in the Brain offers a more complete picture of this massively popular yet often underestimated group.” ~Variety
