'BEATBOX COLOMBIA' follows young musicians from the ghettos. Their lyrics speak of daily life; civil war, street violence, corruption, drugs and the disappearance of close friends. Despite everything, they cling to hope and this they express through their music. The film is made in 8 mm and DVCAM and includes Flash Animations. Some of the footage is shot by the musicians themselves. The power of Latin American hip-hop street life confronts the horror of the Columbian war.
