Biggie and Tupac

Biggie and Tupac
Friend who became deadly enemies

A hit at this year's Sundance Film Festival, Biggie and Tupac investigates the-still unsolved murders of rap superstars Christopher Wallace (aka Biggie Smalls, the Notorious B.I.G.) and Tupac Shakur.

This is a story of two great friends who had a misunderstanding, a falling out and who became deadly enemies.

Their murders were long explained as being the result of the rivalry that had grown up between them, but as the fifth anniversary of their deaths approaches, award-winning documentary maker Nick Broomfield reveals startling evidence to suggest the blame lays else- where.

"The film traces the lives and violent deaths of former friends Tupac Shakur and Christopher Wallace (Biggie Smalls), an exploration that ranges from Los Angeles to New York, from the insistent calls for justice by Wallace's mother to the unnerving threats, veiled and unveiled, by Suge Knight.

Unexpectedly moving and tough-minded, at times even wildly, carelessly brave, this is the film that Broomfield has been working toward since he started down the documentary path.

If the director makes it through the year alive-and given some of the revelations he secures, principally from friends of Wallace/Smalls who, out of love for the dead rapper and his mother, prove incredibly candid- Broomfield will have made not just the best film of his career, but one of the gutsier documentaries in memory."
