On 19 January 2010, the Embassy started a new year of Czech film screenings by Czech RAPublic, directed by Pavel Abrahám and written by Tomáš Bojar.
This first feature-length movie devoted to Czech hip-hop scene is a combination of documentary and a film with carefully prepared script. Three top Czech rappers – Orion, Hugo Toxxx a James Cole – play the leading roles in the film. The authors made them to tell about themselves and the Czech rap more than they might have wished and put them into confrontation with the “majority” society, classical music or cooperation with the popular Czech singer Hana Hegerová.
About 40 mostly younger people from the Czech community in Denmark attended the event and enjoyed the evening. The following debate showed that the guests found both the topic and the concept of the film very interesting.
