You may watch below the first official trailer of Bodied, the upcoming drama comedy movie directed by Joseph Kahn based on a script he co-wrote with Alex Larsen and starring Calum Worthy, Jackie Long, Rory Uphold, Jonathan Park, Walter Perez, Shoniqua Shandai, Charlamagne Tha God, Dizaster, Debra Wilson, Anthony Michael Hall, Lisa Maley, Eddie Perino, Eric Allen Smith, Candice Renee, Daniel Rashid, and Vivian Lamolli:
“A satire set in the world of competitive battle rap, BODIED is the story of Adam Merkin (Calum Worthy), a progressive grad student who becomes an accidental battle rapper after encountering Behn Grym (Jackie Long), a respected icon in the merciless sub-culture of poetic personal insults. As Adam makes his politically-incorrect climb up the ranks, he risks alienating his father, a renowned writer and tenured professor at Adam’s university, along with his skeptical girlfriend Maya, and all of his academic friends. His success breeds outrage however; Adam soon faces growing backlash on campus and the consequences of his controversial talent. BODIED explores the dangerous spaces of the world’s most multicultural and artistically brutal sport.”
Some people talk about “cultural appropriation” like it’s a bad thing. But why would it be? Shouldn’t one be proud when one’s culture is spreading to people from other communities?
