Identity is Everything
5 January 2009 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

Interesting short film about a group of youngsters searching for meaning and their true identities in a world where boundaries are constantly blurred and cultures, religions, and politics constantly clash. Ultimately who are we? Is our identity derived from our parents? Our geography? Our religion? Many people know their individuality, but identity is something else altogether.

This diverse Jaffa-based group use their hip-hop skills to vent their rapid-fire stream- of-consciousness. They think and breath hip-hop, the modern-day poetry flowing from their lips constantly. They'd be doing this even if no one ever listened.

They may never be able to reach any true answers or conclusions, but, then again, what artist ever does?
