Movie propaganda

Forget Baghdad, Miami's off the chain!

Gittoes follows a premise set up by the soldier musician Elliott Lovett, in Soundtrack to war, Iraq “we get shot at more in Miami than Baghdad.”

Rampage takes us to a battered project near Miami airport, to meet the Lovett Family and the Brown Sub community, and explores the ways out - war, music, or death.

Elliot Lovett (23), the soldier Gittoes meets in a rap battle in Baghdad, links the two worlds of war, and takes us to Miami- where we meet street smart, Marcus Lovett (20), considered by Elliot to be the most talented rap artist of the family, and little brother, Denzell (14).

When a 16-year-old assassin murders his talented older brother during the making of the film, Denzell is left with his lyrics and demo CDs, to carry the family's desperate hope that their music will get them out of the ghetto.

Opening a chance for Denzell, the film glides from the gutter of Brown Sub, Miami - the tough street world that Denzell has rapped about in ‘Rampage' - to the giddy heights of the New York offices where Denzell meets, head on, the tests of the music business.
A host of other characters become windows into the human landscape of America's South, as Gittoes gets it down as it happens on the street, stepping outside the hypes and stereotypes, bringing us a startling contemporary portrait of America.

Rampage gets us into the inner workings of Urban Culture which has risen out of the poverty of America's poorest communities to become the dominant popular influence on world youth, music and fashion.

Urban music names Swizz Beatz, Fat Joe, DJ Kaled, Steve Rifkind and others appear in the film, giving an extraordinary endorsement of Denzell Lovett's talent, and insights into inner circles of the music business.
