We Stand Together

The short documentary “We Stand Together” stems from a question: can Hip Hop culture be considered a tool to tackle racial discrimination?
To answer this question, four Afro-descendant dancers from Rome were interviewed, who decided to self-represent themselves through a video clip, using dance as a language of communication.
The personal stories of each, although different from each other, are united by an indissoluble bond: Hip Hop. This bond leads them to be fully free to express themselves.
