"Resistencia: Hip-Hop in Colombia" is a thought-provoking exploration of how young Colombians feel about the crisis afflicting their country. The film follows a summer in the lives of some of Colombiaâ€™s finest rappers, DJs and breakdancers. The film serves as an introduction to Colombiaâ€™s 40-year-old civil war, as seen through the eyes of those directly affected by it. It also gives an intimate insight into life in the barrios of a very volatile country, and how traditional Latino music is losing out to rap music. Entertaining, committed and enlightening, "Resistencia" offers a street level interpretation of current affairs in Colombia.
