“The Puzzle” – this is not a classic hip hop documentary
Posted on 15/02/2016 by Rhymez Essential
“The Puzzle” is a Macedonian documentary/experimental film about the meaning of the hip hop culture in our region. This is not a classic hip hop documentary. It is a collage of views, experiences and ideas of individuals from the Macedonian hip hop scene. The film does not document the history of the Macedonian hip hop, but it raises questions and it opens up a discussion about the present of this culture, by comparing it to a jigsaw puzzle, where getting the final picture is a process of patience, intelligence and creativity.
The film was produced by the informal organization Hip Hop Macedonia, featuring the most acclaimed hip hop artists from Macedonia since its beginning until today – Icko and V.G. (Chista Okolina), Tec (Most Wanted/Oshav Prod.) DJ Goce (SAF), Profo & Chovekot X (Klan Istok), Protiv Site (Legijata), Hrom (graffiti), Tiggaz (DNS) Toni Zen, Green Out, Puka Kozmetika, Brus, Slatkaristika, DzoDzo (Stress), Zhile & Vali, Ognen (beatbox), Zad Agolot, Titanium, Toksikolozi, Avtorizacija, Divizija.
The movie was filmed and produced two years, and official premiere was at Cinedays Festival in Skopje, in November 2015.
