Rap Night

Salvatore Lista -France
2019 — Fiction — English subtitles — festivals@manifest.pictures

What does a young woman do, when she finds herself caught up in the mediocre routines of a sleepy provincial town, where there hasn't been a foot set out of place? Well, her solution to cause ripples and feel alive is both original and dangerous - for her and others - especially when you are married to a local police man! This is a thought provoking and poignant critique of being stuck and a moving portrayal of that chokeholding dynamic which can be found in some couples; one part of the relationship wants to break out, whilst the other is happy to stay put in the ties that bind. Oh, did we mention that this little gem is also a rap musical?
