“Baltimore, where you at?” documentary screening
Baltimore, Maryland, known for being one of the hardest city in the USA, is also the birth place of an hybrid music style between house music and hip-hop, the Baltimore club sound.
The film is a visual a touch and go between two worlds, that touches themselves; the one were people create a music scene, and the other were people, globally speaking, live in a city.
To the roots of the rythm, and the life of those who spins it since two decades now.
The film is a visual and sound dive in the city of Baltimore, his urban landscapes, devastated by the crisis, its inhabitants that struggle, fight, create, live.
Meet the sound pulses of the Baltimore Club soundtrack, meet the creators, pioneers, trying to write this unknown history.
But also, along with those younger, or more distant, who have experience-the potential of this music : one night dancers, citizens, or musicians.
Finally, the film will be an attempt to understand, on the ruins of crises, in what and how music is a sublime way to look up farer and be proud.
In response to the hardness of the everyday life, the simple act of dancing, playing, singing, is a resistance.
