Set against the background of the Second Intifada, this documentary traces the relationship between two rappers one Israeli and one Palestinian. As the events of the Intifada begin to take their toll what begins as a hopeful good-natured and mutually supportive friendship begins to disintegrate as the two musicians begin to grapple with what Israel means to them.

Professors Sylvia Alajaji and Matthew Hoffman will briefly introduce the film before facilitating discussion following its screening.

This event is open to the public.
