'Iceberg Slim: Portrait of a Pimp'

May 10, 2013
Friday, May 10, 2013 - 4:00pm

CalArts, Bijou Theater

FILM/VIDEO:

Jorge Hinojosa
PRESENTS HIS FEATURE DOCUMENTARY

Iceberg Slim:
Portrait Of A Pimp



ALSO PRESENT WILL BE SOME OF HIS COLLABORATORS FROM CALARTS: CONOR KEENAN, CARLY VERONICA WHITE AND NATHAN RUYLE

USA, 2012, 90 minutes, digital film

"A labor of love, several years in the making, Iceberg Slim stitches an engrossing patchwork of heterogeneous material: archival footage …Aware that the pieces of the puzzle don’t fit, that something about Slim’s transition to writing keeps eluding us, Hinojosa made a bold aesthetic decision, linking the different fragments with original art." - Senses of Cinema

Producer: Danny Bresnik
Executive producers: Jorge Hinojosa, Ice-T
Associate Producer: Misty Beck
Original Music: Simone Sello
Cinematography: Kelly Jones
Editor: Danny Bresnik
Sound re-recording mixer and supervising sound editor: Nathan Ruyle
Motion Graphics Director: Conor Keenan
Animation director: Carly Veronica White

Director Jorge Hinojosa blends pulp fiction imagery with ambitious biographical digging to tell the story of legendary pimp/author Iceberg Slim, whose gritty and poetic books about ghetto life gave birth to Street Lit. Interviews include Chris Rock, Ice-T, Snoop Dogg and Quincy Jones.

When Iceberg Slim published Pimp: The Story of My Life in 1969, he launched a potent and unusual literary career, influencing an audience that ranged from artists to street hustlers. The book dazzled with raw language that evoked a life experience different from the worlds of black writers such as James Baldwin or Ralph Ellison. Pimp sold nearly two million copies and was distributed internationally in translation. Slim’s output continued with bestsellers Trick Baby (made into a film), Mama Black Widow (taking on the taboo topic of black homosexuality), and a collection of essays The Naked Soul of Iceberg Slim. Yet when Slim died in 1992, much remained unknown about his life and what aspects of his writing were facts versus fiction.

Director Jorge Hinojosa tells this story with a visual verve that draws upon pulp fiction iconography matched with biographical skills attuned to complexities and contradictions. For twenty-eight years, Hinojosa has been the manager for Ice-T, which has supplied him with insight into the process of creating art out of street life. Years in the making, the film includes archival footage of Slim (whose real name was Robert Beck) along with interviews with his friends, colleagues, and famous admirers such as Chris Rock, Snoop Dogg, Quincy Jones and Ice-T. One of the film’s most significant revelations is an extended interview with Slim’s first wife, Betty Beck, with whom he had children. Betty met Slim after he’d already done stints as a pimp, prisoner and drug addict and was trying to lead a more upstanding life. She played nurse mother to his writing career by getting him to tell stories, which she’d transcribe. The film is poignant in chronicling their symbiotic relationship and the tensions that split it apart.

For the millions of readers who have been enthralled by Slim’s books, this film enriches their understanding. And for newcomers to his world, it’s a great place to start.

Jorge Hinojosa was born in Fayetteville, North Carolina. He is Ice-T's manager and has served as executive producer for the features Urban Menace (1999) and The Wrecking Crew (2000), and the documentary Something from Nothing: The Art of Rap (2012). Iceberg Slim: Portrait of a Pimp (2012) is his directorial debut.
