Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
Hip-hop hits the heartland as filmmaker Bob Bryan travels to Metro High School in Cedar Rapids, IA, to speak with teens attending a four day Hip Hop Summer Workshop in this documentary that explores the concept of Hip-hop as a potential educational tool. Can Hip-hop be utilized by educators as a means of shattering the communication gaps between students and teachers if used effectively and creatively? In his four days in the "Graffiti Verite"-inspired workshop, Bryan explores not only this, but also the negative image of Hip-hop that he believes is propagated in large part by a sensationalistic media.
