President Sarkozy called them racaille -- scum -- but the underground rappers that populate this short film took his insult and made it their own --Rapaille (France, 2009, 29 min.), which gives Emmanuelle Lippe and Bertil Dubachs film its name.
Rapping in Tehran (Iran, 2009, 37 min.) is secret and semi-legal, and many of the performers featured in Hassan Khademi's short film have been arrested for speaking their minds in rhyme.
