About

"Let’s smash the patriarchy!" Swedish hip-hop artist Silvana Imam shouts through a megaphone, and hundreds of hands shoot into the air.

Silvana’s uncompromising punk rap lyrics explore feminism, antiracism, LGBT rights and her own immigrant background (her father is from Syria, her mother from Lithuania). Challenging bodyshaming, racial and gender stereotypes propagated by religious institutions and the media alike, her performances ruffle a fair few feathers.

This intimate portrait of a radically intersectional and talented voice scratches at the polished surface of Sweden’s benevolent, progressive tolerance to reveal the many prejudices bubbling beneath – and celebrates a trailblazer who empowers thousands of young girls to seek a different understanding of their own strength.

Plus Audience discussion, Performance

Join us after the screening for a unique, specially-curated programme of spoken word and musical performances by Scotland-based artists whose work explores women’s empowerment, marginalised experiences and notions of belonging – including hip hop artist Erin Friel, musician Heir of the Cursed and poets Tawona Sithole, Katie Ailes and Leyla Josephine.

 

We are delighted to announce that this event will be fully D/deaf accessible with closed captions throughout the film and BSL interpretation.
