- Lin-Manuel Miranda's 'We Are Freestyle Love Supreme' postpones its Friday release in solidarity with the George Floyd protests.
The documentary based on Lin-Manuel Miranda‘s improv hip-hop group Freestyle Love Supreme has postponed its release date on Hulu in solidarity with the George Floyd protests. The documentary We Are Freestyle Love Supreme was set to start streaming on Hulu this Friday.
“Today our country, our world struggles to reach an end to this systemic racial injustice, intolerance, police brutality and hate. We add our voices to that fight,” a message on the groups official Twitter read.
We Are Freestyle Love Supreme follows Miranda and the rest of the improv group starting the summer of 2005 beatboxing and rapping on the sidewalks before the hit of Hamilton and before the group’s run on Broadway.
“We are for the freedom of expression, creativity, inclusion, equality, and most of all, love,” the group said. “Our work has always centered around creating a safe space for those ideals to flourish. Our show does not exist without the operations of brilliant black artists that created two of our most beloved American art forms, jazz and hip-hop.”
The documentary by filmmaker Andrew Fried premiered at Sundance Film Festival before landing at Hulu.
No new release date has been announced.
