Channels of Rage

(Doc., 72 min., DVD/BETA, 2003)
  • Written & Directed by: Anat Halachmi
  • Produced by: Anat Halachmi – Anat Halachmi Productions, Tel Aviv
  • Sponsored by: The New Foundation for Cinema & Television and Israel’s Documentary Channel


“Blood is spilled and it spills more blood…I am dying to live but living to die.” Subliminal is a proud Zionist rapper who, with fellow artist MC Tamer, a pro-Palestinian Arab, seeks co-existence in the underground Israeli rap scene. Their belief that the language of hip hop can traverse the political tensions of the region to reunite their people is soon shattered as lyrical battles begin to spill onto the streets. This explosive and dynamic documentary explores the tensions between the patriotism of Subliminal’s rhymes and Tamer’s Palestinian nationalism to create a unique commentary on the broader political conflicts within the Middle East.
