Directed by Laura Brownson and Beth Levison
A three-time felon and one-time Tony Award winner, Lemon Andersenís deeply personal art reflects his rough upbringing on the streets of Brooklyn. After losing both parents to drugs and eventually AIDS, Lemon discovered poetry while serving time. Through raw talent and unstoppable drive, he found himself on Broadway, starring in Russell Simmonsí Def Poetry Jam. But when the show closed, he lost everything and moved his wife and two small daughters back to the projects to live with thirteen family members.
Desperate for a way out, he turns to the only things he has left, his pen and his past. LEMON follows one manís three-year journey to adapt his life story for the New York stage while battling his darkest demons. It brings to life the anguish of a generation of men clinging to the margins but fighting for something more. A beautifully crafted film that features a surprise turn by Spike Lee and music by hip-hop phenoms Kanye West, Mos Def, Talib Kweli and Aloe Blacc.
BONUS FEATURES: Deleted Scenes, Outtakes, More Poetry, Trailers
