Snoop Dogg documentary gets March release

'Reincarnated' to bow in New York, Los Angeles, more cities

Vice Films and Snoopadelic Films have set a March 15 release in six cities for Andy Capper’s documentary “Reincarnated,” tracing the life of Snoop Dogg.

“Reincarnated” premiered in September at the Toronto Intl. Film Festival.

The movie centers on a month-long trip to Jamaica that Snoop Dogg made as “a journey of reincarnation of self” after coming to the island to leave rap behind and record a reggae album. While there, He’s positively impacted by the Rastafarian culture, connects with the community in the birthplace of reggae, changes his name to Snoop Lion and begins to espouse the idea of giving up violence for peace.

The film has been set for releases in New York City, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, Atlanta and Miami. Capper, the global editor for Vice magazine, had produced long-form documentary content for the Vice website, but “Reincarnated” is his first feature documentary.

Rob Nelson gave “Reincarnated” a downbeat review for Variety at Toronto: “Lazily charting the unlikely transformation of rapper Snoop Dogg into reggae artist Snoop Lion, ‘Reincarnated’ surely sets a new record for the amount of weed smoked oncamera in a documentary, but its other achievements appear hazy at best.”
