B.L.A.C.K.- An Aboriginal Song of Hip-hop| 26mins
Director: Grant Leigh Saunders | Producer: Grant Leigh Saunders
Focus Years: 2006 | Country: Australia
B.L.A.C.K. is a cipher scribed by independent and Indigenous Hip-hop artist, Wire MC, who urges his audience to fathom what it might mean to be Black in contemporary Australia. Through interview and observation the song is visually and dialectically deconstructed to speak of contemporary Aboriginal blackness, politics and culture. The filmmaker with his own roots in Hip-hop aligns himself with Wire MC and through a rapped narrative unravels the empowering acronym, Born Long Ago Creation's Keeper.
