Sensational documentary crowdfunding distribution

Film maker EA Moore is crowdfunding the distribution of a documentary on rapper Sensational. The film, titled The Rise And Fall And Rise Of Sensational, is complete and has been screened at film festivals in Canada, Germany and Northern Ireland. Moore is seeking $14,000 to pay for additional editing, licensing and legal fees, insurance and DVD production.

Moore tracked and filmed Sensational for five years after meeting him pushing CDs on a street corner in Manhattan and the film contains interviews with Bill Laswell, Mike G, Skiz Fernando and Curver Thoroddsen (Ghostigital). As always with Kickstarter, if the target is not met, the project gets zilch. Watch a trailer for the film below. It was reviewed in The Wire 324.
