Sounds of a New Hope is a documentary film about the life of Filipino-American MC Kiwi and the growing use of hip-hop as an organizing tool in the people's movement for national liberation and democracy in the Philippines. The film follows Kiwi's journey from his life in Los Angeles as a gangbanger to his current role in the San Francisco Bay area as community organizer and activist. Kiwi's journey is punctuated by trips to the Philippines, where he provides rap workshops for Philippine youth in urban areas.
Please join us for a discussion about the film after the 6:00 p.m. screening in the Office of Multicultural Affairs, which will be led by Dr. Thomas Morgan from the Department of English.
