Dancing on the Shoulders of Giants


In the fiftieth anniversary year of hip-hop, we present 'Dancing on the Shoulders of Giants', a documentary that explores the connection between 150 years of Keti Koti - the emancipation of slavery in Suriname - and the birth of hip-hop a century later. This documentary sheds light on how hip-hop has found a home in various places in Rotterdam, including Hiphophuis and Surinamese community centers.
