Then at 8pm, Kings County Cinema Society will present a special screening of director Maggie Hadleigh-West’s recent documentary PLAYER HATING: A LOVE STORY (2010, 95min). Filmed in the Albany Projects in Crown Heights, Player Hating follows rapper Half-a-Mill and his Brooklyn crew, The Godfia Criminals, as they struggle to launch Milion, in an effort to attain money, success and recognition through music. Player Hating delves intimately into the lives of young “thugs”, and takes the viewer into an underground world of poverty, alienation, gangs, violence and music that most audience members have an inkling of, but few rarely see—unless they’ve lived it. You can watch a trailer at the KCCS site – the film’s site is here.
