BLING is a feature documentary that will take a satirical, hard-hitting look at how "blinging" in the flashy world of commercial hip-hop played a role in the 10-year civil war in Sierra Leone. Film takes U.S. hip-hop celebrities on a journey to Sierra Leone diamond mining communities, former child soldiers, refugees and local hip-hop artists. Written by
depressing reality of sierra leon and blood diamonds
the whole point of the hip hop culture, rap, the bling lifestyle is a sort of superhero culture. It's not about the reality of being poor and not being able to make a living, it's about escaping from it. Thats the point of bling.
the point of this movie is to put rappers, some bling makers, and tego calderon, who came from the worst conditions of blood diamond wars back in sierra leon.
I get the feeling the point of this movie is to rub reality in the noses of the rappers.
but like tego calderon says, of the women raped, the amputees, the blood diamonds . . . "It's too much to take." depressing.
I'm not sure the best way to raise awareness for the problem of blood diamonds, but this movie has just too much reality.
