Wu-Tang Clan has revealed plans for a new documentary about their legendary debut studio album Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers). Fittingly-titled For The Children: 25 Years of Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers), the film will thoroughly document the back-story behind Wu-Tang’s game-changing first LP, and is being released to celebrate its 25-year anniversary.
Put together by Certified Classics, the new Wu-Tang Clan piece will feature appearances by the members of the Wu-Tang Clan, A$AP Rocky, A$AP Ferg, Joey Bada$$ and others; Shomi Patwary directed the film and Ashima Aiyer helmed its creative direction, while Ash Peters, Kaki Stergiou and Will McKinney are credited as editors. Notably, For The Children will single out each specific cut on Wu-Tang’s debut full-length for expansive breakdowns of their creative processes and provide viewers with previously-private stories about the moments that brought the records to life. The East Coast group’s “friends and family” are also going to appear to give their thoughts on the long-lasting, continued influence of 36 Chambers.
You can view the lead trailer for For The Children: 25 Years of Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) above, while the film itself is scheduled to arrive on November 9 — the original release date of Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers).
RZA is also working on a new Wu-Tang Clan television series for Hulu, Wu-Tang: An American Saga.
