LIFE FROM THE BBC
By: Jackson Allers
Co-director/DOP: Siska
Editor: Wissam Charaf

Run time: 16 min. | Palestine/Lebanon

This documentary follows two MC’s, Yaseen (20) and TNT (19) of the Palestinian rap group I-Voice (Invincible Voice) from the Bourj al Barajneh Refugee Camp (BBC) in south Beirut, facing constant electricity cuts in their small camp recording studio.

Yaseen and TNT write lyrics by the lights of their cell phones and produce beats to a growing fan base – wracking up an impressive catalogue of music that has earned them a remarkable reputation within the local and international Arab hip-hop scenes. The film follows them as they break out of the confines of refugee life, it is a story about their search for power.

This film is also playing with these other SPECTRUM: SHORT FILMS
