Thought I’d mention the screening of Slingshot Hiphop at Club Metro on Monday 21st December. Following the screening I will be talking to the director Jackie Reem Salloum about the film. A translator will be present for the audience.
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.
Doors open: 6:00pm
Movie showing from 6:30pm (94min)
Interview with director from 8:10pm (40min)
Event finishes: 8:50pm
More details about the screening at Club Metro are here.
Thanks Sean! Club Metro sits beside the Kamo river on Kawabata Dori, below cafe etw and above Marutamachi Station. Take Exit 2 from the station to find it. Here is a super simple map. Tel: 075-752-2787
