Slingshot Hip Hop

June 15, 2009
Slingshot Hip Hop is a documentary film about the roots of Palestinian hip hop. It follows a few of the original hip hop groups that came out of Palestine:

DAM
PR
Arapeyat
Abeer
Mahmoud Shalabi
WE7
Ibrahim
Ramallah Underground

These groups are Palestinians from the West Bank, Israel and Gaza. The film shows how the occupation affects each of them, how its the same and how its different depending on where they live, and how they respond to the oppression and occupation and express themselves through music.
