Slingshot Hip Hop documentary 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.
