Gil Scott-Heron talking about D.C.

One of New Orleans best radio djs, DJ Soul Sister, is hosting Black Wax this week. Directed by acclaimed documentary filmmaker Robert Mugge, Black Wax is a fascinating 79-minute portrait of Scott-Heron performing at the Wax Museum nightclub, D.C. in 1982, interspersed between scenes of him discussing political ironies as he wanders past national monuments and ghetto neighbourhoods in Washington.
