"one in a million...a remarkable film"

Player Hating: A Love Story Premiers in NYC in less than 1 Month!

“THE DOCUMENT of a time and place in American life.”
-Peter Sprier, Academy Award Nominated Filmmaker and CEO of Rugged Entertainment

The award winning new documentary from critically acclaimed director Maggie Hadleigh-West screens in New York City at Quad Cinema from Friday April 6th – Thursday April 12th, and at Indie Screen Friday April 13th & Saturday April 14th.

Player Hating: A Love Story follows hip hop artist Half-a-Mill and his Brooklyn crew as they struggle to escape poverty and violence through music. Player Hating delves intimately into the lives of young “thugs”, and takes the viewer into an underground world of poverty, alienation, gangs, violence and music that most audience members have an inkling of, but few rarely see—unless they’ve lived it.

Praise for Player Hating (video)
“I can only describe the documentary as raw and extreme! Grittiness at it’s finest but don’t take my word for it… I give much respect and credit to Maggie Hadleigh-West because for a white woman to be given such access to the hood means she has street credibility and not everybody has that.” -NYC Gossip Girl, Hip Hop Gossip Site

“Player Hater: A Love Story is one of the premier documents of the Hip Hop Age, and as such deserves a large audience, because it humanely holds nothing back. Absolutely nothing.” – Dean Treadway, Blogger, Filmicability
