THE FURIOUS FORCE OF RHYMES is a feature-length documentary about the explosion of Hip-Hop culture and Rap music around the globe. Tracing the movements' origins on the mean streets of New York City in the 1970's, the film travels to the modern-day immigrant ghettos surrounding Paris and Berlin and into the cities of Jerusalem, Ramallah, and Dakar. The film focuses in six different countries, each revealing a new aspect of the music and a set of social themes: the USA, France, Germany, Israel / Palestine, and Senegal. It is this multi-national look at Hip-Hop on a global level that distinguishes the film from other Hip-Hop documentaries made to date. Using the lyrics of the artists as a jump-off point, The Furious Force… is a powerful meditation on poverty, racism, struggle and hope. It is also a vibrantly musical film, with performances and a soundtrack that radiates off the screen. It is the first major film about Hip Hop both in and OUTSIDE of the United States.
