One of the few directors we’d trust to guide us through the web of lies at the centre of The Great Hip Hop Hoax documentary is our dearest of filmmaking friends Jeanie Finlay. Jeanie joined us for a pre-SXSW World Premiere chat about making her bromance gone wrong feature and how she went about documenting the truth when her lead protagonists were self-confessed liars of epic proportions.

There was a moment at the beginning of the film where I just thought, “Well am I being lied to & what am I being lied to about?”
