Hip Hop Revolución (Documentary)

Hip Hop Revolución
(Director: Pablo Navarrete, Alborada Films, 60 mins, 2015)

British activist Jody McIntyre travels to Venezuela with UK-Iraqi rapper Lowkey to spend time with ‘Hip Hop Revolución’, a dynamic collective of musical revolutionaries. They witness their inspiring grassroots work and share music and ideas, exploring the cultural and political changes taking place in the country. At its heart, this film is about the power of music, community and the spirit of rebellion.

"Pablo Navarrete’s 'Hip-Hop Revolución' is quite simply one of the best documentaries made about music and politics in Latin America. A fascinating and informative exploration of the dynamic ways in which popular culture influences politics and vice versa, 'Hip-Hop Revolución' offers a unique perspective on Venezuela in the Chávez period."

- Dr Hazel Marsh (Lecturer in Spanish, School of Politics, Philosophy, Language and Communication Studies, University of East Anglia and author of 'Hugo Chávez and Alí Primera in Venezuela: The Politics of Music in Latin America')
