Broken Song

Tuesday, December 6th, 8 pm
Suns Cinema - Theater and Bar
3107 Mt. Pleasant Street NW

GI, Costello and Willa Lee are street poets, hip-hop artists and songwriters from north Dublin. For these young men self-expression in the form of poetry, rap and song has become a spiritual experience. Their aim is simply to articulate the chaos that surrounds them and to fight it with their words and voices alone. Along the way it has become their identity, their religion and, as they claim themselves, they are its high priests.
Broken Song premiered at the Jameson Dublin International Film Festival in 2013 where it won the Audience Award and the Dublin Critics Circle 'Discovery' Award.
