VICE and Snoopadelic Films today announce the March 17, 2013 West Coast theatrical release of Snoop Lion’s REINCARNATED, the feature film that traces the life and career of hip-hop legend Snoop Dogg, as he embarks on a “journey of reincarnation of self” that is equal parts career reinvention and spiritual reawakening.
The close-up documentary, directed by Andy Capper, seamlessly showcases his journey and controversial transformation from hip-hop star to reggae singer while he was recording his forthcoming album REINCARNATED, executive produced by Major Lazer. An official selection of the critically acclaimed Toronto International Film Festival, the highly anticipated film chronicles Snoop Dogg’s spiritual journey to SNOOP LION that grew from his recent trip to Jamaica – where the Jamaican people and culture positively affected him.
REINCARNATED, presented by VICE Films and Snoopadelic Films, delves into the legacy of Rastafari music culture as Snoop visits Trench Town, the birthplace of reggae and one-time stomping grounds of luminaries Peter Tosh, Bob Marley and the still living Bunny Wailer. The film gives viewers unprecedented access as Snoop reflects on his turbulent and rapid rise from Long Beach to international icon to his rechristening as “Snoop Lion.” REINCARNATED is produced by Suroosh Alvi of VICE Media and Ted Chung of Stampede Management.
REINCARNATED will makes it’s West Coast Canadian theatrical premiere in Vancouver at The Rio Theatre, March 17 to 20, 2013.
