Sounds of the New Hope (Video)
In the Philippines, the future of the nation is in the hands of the youth. Sounds of the New Hope documents the journey of Kiwi, a Filipino American rapper, as he returns to his motherland to integrate with youth activists in the struggle for national democracy. During his political exposure trip, he finds that hip-hop is a vibrant part of urban poor youth culture and helps the local organizers to utilize it to raise the political consciousness of the youth.
