Directed by Sacha Jenkins (Fresh Dressed and Burn Motherfucker, Burn!,) Wu-Tang Clan: Of Mics and Men is a four-part docuseries with interviews from all living members of the group. The first half the series will make its debut at the acclaimed film festival and air on Showtime at some point this year.
