Slingshot Hip Hop [Premiere]

Jackie Reem Salloum, United States, 2008, 80, OVS. English

In Palestine, Rap has begun to become a social weapon. This documentary approaches the musicians living in permanent conflict with the Israeli occupation and their difficult musical career: some for being women (Abeer, Arapeyat), some for the conditions in which the country exists (DAM, Mahmoud Shalabi) and others for being located in the Gaza area. Through their testimonies we approach a reality that is habitually treated in a diffuse way by the media.
