Following his film about music and war in Iraq, Soundtrack to War , Producer/ DirectorGeorge Gittoes slices into the mirky underbelly of the Giant Land of the Free. RAMPAGE is another Gittoes journey into the forbidden zones; – America’s war in Iraq, and in it’s own backyard – life in a Miami ‘hood – an exploration of hiphop’s musical innovations, as important as the field s the field hollers, the blue, the blues, and jazz, which also began in the black ghettos, and went on to evolve as major music styles.
Elliot Lovett, whom Gittoes befriended during the filming of Soundtrack to War, told him of his family and his younger brother Marcus, who he insisted was a gifted poet-rapper. Gittoes made the trip to Miami to meet the family, with the intention of creating a Stateside sequel to Soundtrack to War, continuing the theme of music in a dangerous place.
