Resistencia: Hip Hop in Colombia - Colombian Paramilitary OPs

Posted on: June 20, 2005 | Views: 81 | Comment

A grisly introduction to Colombia's 40-year-old civil war, set against a hip-hop soundtrack.

A thought-provoking exploration of how young Colombians feel about the crisis afflicting their country and an introduction to Colombia's 40-year-old civil war, as seen through the eyes of those directly affected by it. The film follows a summer in the lives of some of Colombia's finest rappers, DJs and break dancers, providing an insight into how traditional Latino music is giving way to rap. Entertaining, committed and enlightening, Resistencia offers a street level interpretation of current affairs in Colombia.

'Resistencia: Hip Hop in Colombia may be too gritty to ever make it to MTV, but it shows with jolting immediacy how hip-hop is as vital and relevant to Colombia's street culture as it was to urban African-Americans before it was co-opted by the mass media and mainstream artists'.
-Lael Loewenstein, Variety magazine

Resistencia won Best Music Film at the Portobello Film Festival, Best Foreign Film at the HBO Urban World Film Festival, the Special Jury Prize at the Bogota International Film Festival, and received an Honorary Mention as Best Documentary at the Oakland Film Festival.
