P.A.T.H.' (which stands for Preserving, Archiving and Teaching Hip-Hop History) is the new film by award-winning filmmaker Dan Perez. It documents the P.A.T.H. Hip-Hop Academy, the first ever summer camp of it's kind in Miami. P.A.T.H. is the brainchild of popular Miami hip-hop artist Brimstone127 who after eight years, finally found a home for his program at the Miami Light Project, a not-for-profit cultural organization. During the four week camp, teenagers from ages 13-18 studied Hip-Hop history, the art of deejaying, emceeing (rapping), B-boying and B-girling (break-dancing), and urban art. Several of Miami's most talented artists and performers served as instructors. The list included urban artist Krave, DJ Immortal from the late Jam Master Jay's Scratch Academy, International B-Girl Beta Rawkz and Soulflower, Miami's 'Empress of Hip-Hop', who has shared the mic with emcees such as Erykah Badu, KRS-ONE and Outkast. The camp also featured an impressive lineup of guest speakers such as Grandmaster Dee of Whodini, DJ Epps, popular Miami artist Lebo, Faisal Tavernier of Urban America Newspaper, Hip-Hop theater performer Teo Castellanos and International motivational speaker Kirk Nugent, to name a few.The film demonstrates how powerful Hip-Hop's original elements can be as an educational tool for today's inner-city youth while calling to question the state of today's rap scene and the stereotypes it's artists have created.
