Part of People Everyday: The Films of Jeanie Finlay
Dir. Jeanie Finlay. 2013, 86 mins. Foul-mouthed Californian hip hop duo Silibil n' Brains were going to be massive. But no one knew the pair were really amiable Scotsmen, with fake American accents and made up identities. This documentary tells the audacious tale of how two lads from Dundee duped the record industry and nearly destroyed themselves.
