Dam Native, "Behold My Kool Style”

Loading the player...

A classic from Jonathan King and the self-proclaimed 'pioneers of horrified hip hop' Dam Native. Building on the idea from rapper Danny Haimona, the crew are shown in the style of Māori portraiture from the late 19th century. The director notes that this old look was 'achieved by making a print off the negative, which the cinematographer and I battered, scratched and mangled. We scanned that, as well as the negative, giving a really organic, old film look'.
