22 January 2017 | denitzatoteva
| Harsh reality of the Palestinian in Israel shown using the positive means of the hip-hop
The pick of the Berlinale Panorama Audience Award has never let me down. Last year that pick was Junction 48 - another hidden masterpiece that I have discovered thanks to that award. The movie shows the harsh reality of the Palestinian in Israel using the very gentle and positive means of the youth culture. And that's what I loved about this movie - it completely involves you in the way of life without making you at the end feeling sick because of all tragedies happening in the movie. The movie also has a good balance of critical comment on all sides of Israeli and Arab society. Both communities have some rotten apples, but also some positive people who want to live, enjoy life and create art. As a final note, make yourself a favor and check the website of the movie. The music videos there will keep the memory of the hip hop movement in Israel with you for a long time.
