Screening and speaker series: Slingshot Hip Hop

About this Event

We are pleased to announce the launching of JVP-NYC Cinema Palestine: a monthly two-part event where we watch a film together on some aspect of the movement for Palestinian liberation and then hear from film producers and others involved in its content or production discuss the film and ways to take action. The purpose of this series is to gain a deeper understanding of Palestinian struggles to ground and enrich our organizing.

Part 1: Film Screening, Saturday, October 24, 8pm

Watch Sling Shot Hip Hop with friends and the JVP-NYC community. Or you can watch the film on your own time here.

Part 2: Talk back and Q&A, Monday, October 26, 7:30pm

Join us to hear Ora Wise, co-producer of Slingshot Hip Hop, and chapter leader Una Osato speak on the film followed by Q&A—and mobilize together for Palestine. Moderated by Ben Snyder, screenwriter, filmmaker, and playwright.

About the Film

Slingshot Hip Hop (2008) traces the history and development of Palestinian Hip Hop, in the Palestinian territories from the time DAM pioneered the art form in the late 1990s. It braids together the stories of young Palestinian artists 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.

Director, Jackie Reem Salloum
