De-‘Cypher’ This!

Congratulations to Eric Bempong for his role in the film, “Cypher” for the Crazy8s’ Film Festival.

Director: Lawrence Le Lam
Writers: Nach Dudsdeemytha, Lawrence Le Lam, Jerome Yoo

Story Line: Worlds collide when a young, unknown Korean rapper takes on the king of the local cypher…

Tensions still linger in 1997 Los Angeles between the Korean-American and the Black communities after the ‘92 Riots. After an incident in his father’s restaurant, Jay, a Korean-American high school student finds himself pulled into LA’s underground battle rap scene where the two worlds collide.

Crazy8s is an 8-day filmmaking event

Running since 1999, Crazy8s provides funding and support to emerging filmmakers to help them produce a short film. It was created to foster support for emerging filmmakers who have little or no access to funding for short films and to train crew and cast.

The event culminates in a Gala screening and party followed by film festivals and distribution.

It’s fast! It’s fun! It’s Crazy8s!
