Hip-Hop Beyond Beats & Rhymes

Byron Hurt. 2006. United States of America. vo English. 61’

This is a riveting documentary that examines representations of gender roles in hip-hop and rap music through the lens of filmmaker Byron Hurt, a former college quarterback turned activist. Conceived as a “loving critique” from a self-proclaimed “hip-hop head”, Hurt examines issues of masculinity, sexism, violence and homophobia in today's hip-hop culture.
