Amplify, an Indigenous hiphoppa and member of the Edmonton-based hip hop group Unspittable, reflects over the three years the group has been together in the hour before a gig. Rich of intimate performances, Unspittable is an improvised ethno-fiction film immersing its audience into the reality of Indigenous hip hop in urban Canada.
Unspittable, by showcasing rap as a medium of expression and a lived contemporary indigenous testimony, brings to light the necessity of writing one’s own narrative. A touching film, full of passion and sincerity.
