“Slingshot Hip Hop” braids together the stories of young Palestinians living in Gaza, the West Bank and inside Israel as they discover hip hop and employ it as a tool to surmount divisions imposed by occupation and poverty. From internal checkpoints and Separation Walls to gender norms and generational differences, this is the story of young people crossing the borders that separate them.

Featuring Palestinian hip hop artists DAM, PR (Palestinian Rapperz), ABEER, Arapeyat, and Mahmoud Shalabi. 2008, 83 min., Arabic, English & Hebrew.
