Channels of Rage

  • 501 Schermerhorn Hall, Columbia University

A film by Anat Halachmi

Subliminal is described in the local rap scene as the "reinventor of Hebrew language". He presents himself as the first proud Zionist rapper. Similarly, Tamer (TN) an Arab rapper from Lod who became a cultural icon for Israeli Arab youth, is no less proud of his Palestinian identity. Just like Siamese twins, Subliminal and Tamer are the two inseparable parts of the same unsolved conflict, which defines our lives. A patriotic Zionist rapper and a nationalist Arab rapper use the power of words and music to state as loud as they can what politicians in Israel can’t seem to put into words. Channels of Rage won an award for 'Best Documentary' at the Jerusalem International Film Festival.
