“The Hip-Hop Project,” a film from executive producers Bruce Willis(Huh?) and Queen Latifah (OK, that makes sense) follows a group of New York City teenagers as they create a collaborative album through an outreach program developed by Chris “Kazi” Rolle called Art Start.

The documentary, which has been racking up film festival honors, receives a national release on May 11. But on Saturday, The Historical Society of Washington and Hip-Hop Cinema Café will hold a free advance screening.

The film will be followed by a panel discussion with Mazi Mutafa of the hip-hop journal "Words Beat & Life," Dr. William Smith of the International Association for Hip-Hop Education and Peter Krsko of the arts non-profit Albus Cavus.

The event starts Saturday at 2 p.m. at the Historical Society of Washington, 801 K St., NW.
