A few films that capture the art of DJing.La Haine – directed by Mathieu Kassovitz
Meticulously crafted scene that ends with a riveting crane shot.
Juice – directed by Ernest R. Dickerson
Some may prefer the battle scene, but for me the shots of Q putting together a tape capture the joyous solitude of a bedroom DJ.
Wild Style – directed by Charlie Ahearn
This memorable section of Grandmaster Flash cutting it up in the kitchen is a perfect display of the DIY ethos of early hip hop.
