“The Otherside” hip-hop documentary film project is the vision of local Olympian JR Celski, Vinny Dom, and filmmakers Dan Torok and Jeff Santos. Over the previous year they have compiled hours of interview and concert footage taken in various locations around the country including New York, following the tours of Seattle rap artists. The material gives an insider look at the growing Seattle scene that is snowballing towards national recognition. See the other “not so glamorous” side of artists lives as they are followed them into their homes, studios, backstage, in addition to their national tours. Experience everything from the daily struggles and obstacles, to the triumphs and successes these artists face as they reach for stardom. The film touches on various hip-hop stereotypes including race, community, drug addiction, and sexism. The diverse list of Seattle talent and different facets of the scene will expose you to the hip- hop in a way you may never have experienced before.
