A documentary about the rapper Rabah Donquishoot from the legendary Algerian hip hop band MBS, Le Micro Brise Le Silence (The Microphone Breaks the Silence).
Formed in 1994 against a backdrop of economic hardship and violent political unrest, MBS were pioneers of politically charged, conscious Algerian/Arab rap in the 1990’s. Never afraid to speak truth to power, MBS led by Rabah Donquishoot voiced the concerns of the youth and provided for many, a soundtrack for their generation.
In this film, Rabah speaks about his life and times, hopes and dreams. He talks about the beginnings of Algerian hip-hop, his lyrics and influences. As well as his journey as a musician he talks about his life as a family man working as a highly regarded chef.
