Directed by Abd Al Malik | 2014

Celebrated rapper and spoken word artist Abd Al Malik makes his directorial debut with this candid account of his early life and artistic awakening. Born to Congolese immigrants, he grew up in Strasbourg’s housing projects, participating in petty crimes that cost the lives of his friends. He found release in writing and performance, converting to Sufism at age 24 and penning the memoir that informed this adaptation. The film—which earned him the FIPRESCI Discovery Prize at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival—is shot in gorgeous black and white and recalls Mathieu Kassovitz’s seminal urban crime drama La Haine.
