Directed by Sacha Jenkins, this documentary will feature archival footage, interviews, and concert video from the past as well as guests like Nas and Charlamagne Tha God (whom is featured in the trailer).
“It was almost like a police state, and a lot of people don’t leave,” RZA said in the opening of the trailer.
“And somewhere in the middle of all that shit is that hope – that one of us is going to make it,” Method Man added.
The next moments in the trailer are the members discussing their moment when they knew they had something special, and it propelled them into stardom.
“The black, red, yellow, brown and white were all rockin’ with us,” RZA said. “These five families [have] become our wings.”
“The Wu-Tang Clan is a seminal group that deserves a seminal documentary,” Showtime’s Vinnie Malholtra said in a statement. “Sacha Jenkins delivers just that, not only reminding us of their powerful history through vintage footage, but also placing their impact in modern-day perspective that will be meaningful both to their diehard fans and music fans in general.”
Although the entire documentary will be shown this spring, if you’re in Utah, you can catch the first two episodes at Sundance debuting Monday (January 28th – check show times here).
