Behold the trailer for Interplanetary Peace Talks – a new documentary film following the activities of visonary rapper, vocalist and funkonaut Declaime AKA Dudley Perkins. That title is in no way hyperbole–the trailer sets off with the words “I was able to see myself from all four corners of the room” and goes deeper from there. A bit out there for the mainstream, perhaps?
But then again it might be more mainstream then you think because let’s be honest, times is weird these days (no Theo). And when the mothership is acting a little wonky we could all benefit from having SomeOthaShip parked on a strategic getaway trajectory. Interplanetary Peace Talks lands in stores, August 30th and in the spirit of the times, Okayplayer will be debuting it in it’s entirety right here the same day. Watch above (and stay attuned for more).
After producing and directing a documentary on rapper Wildchild of The Lootpack in 2003, "Wild 'N You" filmmakers A.J. Calomay and Paul Dang began shooting their next project that same year. The subject: the enigmatic Dudley Perkins aka Declaime. The process was not what they expected. Vegas, Spaghetti, Smoke, Bugs, Beer, Sunlight, Darkness, Pogo Sticks. This is not your average hip hop documentary. Experience what the filmmakers saw through their time spent with Dudley, from 2003 to 2008. Artist, singer, father, preacher, poet, partner, rapper, friend, and enigma. Why take so long for this film to be released? Because Dudley can show us the path to love and life in 2012 and beyond.
Directed by A.J. Calomay and Paul Dang
