Lyrics Revolt (2011, 50 min, view trailer), by Shannon Farhoud, Ashlene Ramadan, Melanie Fridgant, Rana Khaled Al Khatib - As pro-democracy revolutions spread through the Arab world, one sound in particular is echoing the hopes, dreams and frustrations of its people: hip hop. ‘Lyrics Revolt’ captures leading Arab artists who employ the sharp political edge of hip hop during this game-changing time for the MENA region and beyond. (Arabic and English, with English subtitles). After the film there will be a Q&A discussion with the audience about hip hop in the Arab world. The audience will be joined by several members of the DC-PFAF board. 

The DC Palestinian Film and Arts Festival (DC-PFAF) is a volunteer-run project organized by the DC chapter of the US Palestinian Community Network (USPCN-DC) in Washington, DC to showcase the work of Palestinian filmmakers and artists. It is the first effort of its kind in DC to shine the spotlight solely on Palestinian filmmakers.

Proceeds will support the DC Palestinian Film and Arts Festival (DC-PFAF) and BloomBars. Free popcorn and refreshments provided. BloomScreen Indie Film Night – is a weekly series of independent and foreign films, accompanied by discussions with filmmakers and other experts.
