Diamonds in the Rough: documentary on Uganda's politicized hiphop scene

Diamonds in the Rough is a fantastic documentary about the role that hip-hop is playing in organizing the anti-war/anti-poverty movement in Uganda. Narrated by Michael Franti, it tells an gripping story of the way that Ugandan rappers risk political reprisals by creating anthemic rhymes that tell the stories of the victims of the bloody civil war and the long, increasingly corrupt reign of Musoveni. The movie's on the festival circuit now.
