Co-director Pablo Navarrete writes:
This film will be about Venezuela’s ‘Hip Hop Revolucion’ (HHR) movement, an inspiring collective of musical revolutionaries.
I went to Venezuela to shoot the documentary in November last year, alongside Jody McIntyre (co-director), GlobalFaction (cameraman) and UK-Iraqi rapper Lowkey, who performed at HHR’s 8th anniversary concert.
At its heart this film will be about the power of community, music, and the spirit of rebellion. The film will also be a testament to what can be achieved when idealism is allied with hard work and mutual solidarity.
This article gives some more background to the film.
