Event

SLINGSHOT HIP HOP
FEBRUARY 20, Sunday
One screening only at 5:30pm

Slingshot Hip Hop illustrates how hip-hop appeals to the world's oppressed. For Palestinian acts like DAM, Palestinian Rapperz, and the most fierce Abeer, Palestine's First Lady of R&B, their fascination with hip-hop came naturally: Pioneers like 2Pac echoed their social frustrations and confirmed that their reality could be given a voice. "We saw our hood" is how one of Jackie Reem Salloum's subjects describes what he felt when he saw 2Pac's "Holla If Ya Hear Me" music video for the first
time, and when they meet Chuck "Hip-Hop is our CNN" D, the boys of DAM practically flip, their eyes beaming as brightly as the bombs that fly overhead in Lyd, Israel. It is there that Salloum and her camera ventures, showing us how young people are opening a window into their impoverished lives, shunning violence and choosing to fight the power of the Israeli occupation through words. Their music is crude in ways bad and good, but the film understands that Palestinian hip-hop is still very much in its infancy, and the need for acts like DAM and Palestinian Rapperz to foster a healthy sense of community through music and articulate and attempt to make sense of the diaspora of enslavement and displacement resonates strongly throughout.
