SLINGSHOT HIPHOP | JACQUELINE REEM SALLOUM | 2008 | 83 MINS | ARABIC,ENGLISH, HEBREW, SUBTITLED | PALESTINE/US

This month we are joined by artist Alice Francis and members of the Dumfries Palestinian Support Group for a documentary film screening sharing the story of young hip hop artists breaking through the borders that separate them and using their music as a tool to surmount divisions.

ABOUT THE FILM
Slingshot Hip Hop is a feature length documentary that 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. Premiering at the Sundance Film Festival and later screening on the Sundance Channel, Slingshot has been shown globally winning over 13 awards and is used in classrooms as an educational tool in the Middle East.

ABOUT REEL TO REAL
Reel to Real Cinema is a monthly film space in the Stove Cafe, featuring an eclectic mixture of conversational films – from artist made shorts to feature length documentaries, locally made to international cinema. A space for discussion and thought-provoking films, you are welcome to join us after the film for a short discussion about the themes from this month’s selection. The Stove Cafe will be open from 5.30pm – 6:45pm with a special pre-film dinner option alongside hot drinks and cakes.
