Fresh Guide to Florence with Fab 5 Freddy

Available to view 12 am on June 18 through 12 am on June 20.


Directed by David Shulman (USA, 2019, 60 min.) Digital.

Take a revelatory look at 15th- and 16th-century Italian Renaissance art through the eyes of hip-hop legend and art lover Fab 5 Freddy. Amidst rock star artists like Michelangelo and powerful patrons such as the Medici family, Fab discovers groundbreaking images of a multiracial and multiethnic society in artworks that have fallen through the cracks of art history and neglected by art historians.
