Slingshot Hip Hop braids together the stories of young Palestinians living in the West Bank, Gaza, and inside Israel as they discover Hip Hop and use it to overcome various 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. The film was an official selection at this year's Sundance Film Festival.

With live special guest performances by:
Remi Kanazi
The Mahina Movement
Abeer Al Zinati (aka Sabreena da Witch)

Award-winning film will be followed by a Q&A with director Jackie Salloum and Abeer Al Zinati.
