Casey's favorite documentary is AMERICAN DREAM, which chronicles a six-month labor strike at Hormel in Minnesota, asking... was it worth it? Or was the strike a long-term disaster for organized labor?
Casey Suchan co-directed Rock The Bells, a critically acclaimed documentary on the final performance of hip-hop artists Wu-Tang Clan prior to the death of frontman Ol’ Dirty Bastard. Released by Warner Brothers, it has earned comparisons to Woodstock and Gimme Shelter and has been called the best film about hip-hop ever made.
Suchan previously produced a series of best-selling documentaries on Hip Hop culture and history with Quincy (QD3) Jones, III. Thug Angel, the first documentary to explore Tupac Shakur’s life as a product of his political upbringing, broke pre-sale records for its distributor Image Entertainment.
The Freshest Kids has become an underground favorite on the development of East Coast breakdancing, and Beef and its sequel Beef 2, are considered by most Hip Hop fans to be definitive explorations of the MC battle from Kool Moe Dee to 50 Cent.
Beef was certified double platinum and awarded Best Music DVD of the Year by VIBE Magazine.
Currently, Casey is in production on a feature documentary about a precedent setting case brought against the activist organization “Stop Huntington Animal Cruelty USA” (SHAC USA) by the U.S. Government in which six individuals were convicted of terrorism for their parts in a protest campaign against the corporation Huntingdon Life Sciences.
She is also a founder of Sporkonline.com, a membership-based lifestyle and cooking website that features monthly classes on cooking plant-based, heart-healthy foods.
