    The Film

    Stolen Moments is an unprecedented concert event featuring jazz all-stars including Ramsey Lewis and Pharaoh Sanders with hip-hop stars like Digable Planets, Guru, and the Pharcyde. Together, they offer a center-stage collaboration with a message: informative and necessary discussions — about AIDS, risk, and unsafe sex — of special interest to urban youth of color.
