What does it take to get an event to happen—particularly one as challenging as reuniting the nine notorious no-shows who formerly comprised hip-hop’s legendary Wu-Tang Clan? Directors Denis Henry Hennelly and Casey Suchan’s thrilling Rock the Bells offers a fast-paced insider’s account of concert promoter Chang Weissberg’s seemingly quixotic but ultimately successful quest to book Wu-Tang in 2004 for the annual California hip-hop festival Rock the Bells, just months before the death of ODB. The film, which also includes performances from the likes of Redman, Dilated Peoples, MC Supernatural, Sage Francis and others, has been described as a Woodstock for the hip-hop generation.
