Celluloid Dreams has picked up international sales rights to Sundance documentary competition entry Slingshot Hip Hop.

The film was directed by Jackie Reem Salloum and produced by Rumzi Araj, Jackie Reem Salloum and Waleed Zaiter. Featuring the Palestinian Artists: DAM, Abeer, PR, Mahmoud Shalabi and Arapeyat.

The deal was brokered between Celluloid president Hengameh Panahi and Steven Beer of Greenberg Traurig.

In Slingshot Hip Hop, a new generation shoots rhymes instead of rocks as Palestinian rappers form alternative voices of resistance within the Israeli-Palestinian struggle.

Interweaving multiple stories of young Palestinians in Israel, Gaza, and the West Bank, filmmaker Jackie Reem Salloum spotlights a vibrant Hip Hop scene as emerging artists discover rap and employ it as a means to surmount age-old conflicts deepened by occupation and poverty. The film is billed as a reflection of the rappers themselves, an inspiring union between the Palestinian struggle and this Black American art form gone global.
