Accompanied by an evening event with live music from some of the finest London based Latin musicians.


> SESSION 1: (MIDDAY-2.15PM)


BUENOS AIRES RAP
75 mins, 2014, Diane Ghogomu, Segundo Bercetche and Sebastian Muñoz
**European Premiere and Skype Q&A with Diane Ghogumo
Dynamic documentary exploring hip-hop culture's influence on Buenos Aires, Argentina and vice versa.

"Buenos Aires Rap is a documentary which, as the name suggests, is about the rap and hip-hop scenes active in Buenos Aires today. But it’s more than that. Directors Diane Ghogomu, Segundo Bercetche and Sebastian Muñoz have taken hip-hop and used it as a framework to portray a snapshot of the variations of life in contemporary Buenos Aires. It’s a stunning piece of film-making, with characters as dynamic and engaging as the music they’re making, as well as beautiful shots of the city, from the streets of the provincial slums to the clubs in the city centre."
