A documentary essentially made by Tupac Amaru Shakur, Tupac: Resurrection uses interviews, photographs and home movies to present the life of one of the greatest music artists of all time. Growing up in a politicized atmosphere, initiated by his mother Afeni who was a Black Panther, Shakur attended a performing arts high school in Baltimore, where he began rapping. Success came early, as did a series of arrests and accusations of violence, leading up to his meteoric rise to fame and still-unsolved 1996 murder. Today, he is remembered fondly as a complex American legend who spoke against white supremacy, police brutality, institutionalized racism, the failures of capitalism, and mischaracterizations of the Black identity and experience.
