My first film class protect was “What is Hip-Hop?”, the film was expressing the important elements of Hip-Hop. Rhymes, Beats, Graffiti, and DJs are the most important elements that express culture of the inner city. The film was screened at Union County College film festival; also the film was enjoyed and entertaining. However there were others who criticize the film, because of their views. At times I was criticized because I wanted to expand the film, so people can understand the true elements of hip-hop to a large area.
