Slingshot Hip Hop

Zondag 2 oktober – Filmavond, 20uur:  (Jackie Reem Salloum, USA, 2008, 80′) – Documentary
Slingshot Hip Hop portrays the story of three aspiring Palestinian musicians from the rap group DAM as they develop their talent in their bedrooms and take it to standing-room-only crowds throughout historic Palestine.
Instead of performing empty songs to Jewish Israeli party-goers, as they did before their political awakening, DAM begin performing Arabic-language raps celebrating Palestinian literary figures, and decrying the realities of Palestinian life under Israeli rule in front of ever-growing crowds of Palestinian youth.Every sunday from 20:00, film night at Joe’s Garage, nice, warm and cozy cinema!
