Jason van Genderen film

If you haven’t heard of Jason van Genderen, then you soon will! He is one of only two filmmakers worldwide to be selected as part of the Sundance Nokia Music competition being held in London this week. Filmmakers around the world were asked to create a 60 second trailer on an underground music story and Jason’s film, Red Earth Hip Hop, examines Indigenous Hip Hop and how it reconnects youth with their traditional language and cultural practices. The film was shot in only four days in Lockhart River, Queensland and looks at the powerful impact of Hip Hop on that community. Keep up to date with Jason on his website and catch a glimpse of his winning entry here. Just a taste of things to come!
