“One of the 10 TOP hip hop films”
-Martha Diaz: Odyssey Film Festival, Hip Hop Assoc., New York City
This work directed by Vanessa Gocksch, explores traditional forms of Colombian music and their relationship to Hip Hop. By way of interviews, events, landscapes, and everyday situations, the documentary uncovers how youth overcome their sense of exclusion to construct a movement of hope and truth. As we witness their efforts to self-produce, organize, and multiply knowledge, we realize their deeper need to perpetuate their culture, to communicate, to give and exist. Through the lyrics of Tribu Omerta, Por Razones de Estado, Zona Marginal and others, we discover the lucid consciousness of a youth movement that, through art, seeks to awaken and renew its society. This documentary represents the voice of the Colombian streets.
