Abstract:

A fascinating documentary portrait of this nascent musical revolution, UNDERGROUND CHINESE HIP-HOP follows pioneering rapper MC Weber as he spearheads the creation of rap music in China. This form of creative self-expression has spread like wildfire amongst those struggling the most: young working class students and migrants left out of the country's meteoric rise. Through rap, these post-Mao millennials have found a voice and vehicle for expressing the frustration, anger, hopes and dreams of a generation grappling with their place in the new China, yet the movement is challenged by two distinct parties. The strain of social commentary and opposition that is a hallmark of underground hip hop makes it a threat in the eyes of the state censors; and state-backed pop stars also seek to co-opt the genre for their own gain. Will this musical movement survive?. Official Selection at the Miami International Film Festival.
