Slingshot Premieres at Sundance

Friday, February 15th, 2008

Palestinian Hip Hop made it’s big screen debut at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah. DAM, Abeer and Mohammed Al-Farra (of Palestinian Rapperz) flew out to attend the festival and spoke at the end of all six of the sold out screenings. The emcees rocked a number of live shows during the week, energizing the crowd on every occasion.

Despite our best efforts, three of our featured emcees – Mahmoud Shalabi from Akka, Kan’aan, and Mezo from Gaza – were denied visas by the US embassy in Israel and could not join us at Sundance. They were sorely missed.
