Silvana + introduction by De Bovengrondse

Swedish hip-hop artist Silvana Imam is a “power pussy” seeking to smash patriarchy with her anti-racist, feminist raps. Her raw lyrics are autobiographical and strongly focused around sexual identity, politics and her own immigrant background—her father is from Syria, her mother from Lithuania. The film shows a unique look at the raucous early years of her career while also sharing an intimate love story.  

Dutch feminist organisation De Bovengrondse will give an introduction before the screening

'De Bovengrondse is a movement that comes together to exchange ideas and set up projects . The goal: working towards equality regardless of gender. Our feminism is socially critical and takes into account different forms of inequality. We organize informal meet-ups and a light hearted evening on feminism that is open for everyone. Next to that we like to shake things up with our campaigns on topics that need more attention.’

Check out their project: Meer vrouwen op straat (more women in the street).
