After a brief introduction to political rap as it was known in Jamaica in the 1970s and the United States in the 1980s, Siegel delves into the stories of musicians including Emmanuel Jal, a former Sudanese child soldier, and Zayar Thaw, who was imprisoned by the Burmese government for creating rap collective Generation Wave.
Siegel will be showing never before seen footage from "Outspoken", along with interviews from her recent trip to Burma. The completed documentary, "Outspoken", will be distributed by FreeStyle Life Inc., which will be bringing the audience behind the scenes throughout the whole production by Alchemy Films.
