SAY MY NAME directed by Amsterdam-based film-maker, Nirit Peled, will screen Friday, January 28, 2011, 7pm at the 5th Avenue Cinema. Cost: $5 suggested donation. Free to PSU students and faculty with valid ID. Proceeds from the screening series will go towards supporting film education for women. In an industry dominated by men and noted for misogyny, the unstoppable lyricists of SAY MY NAME are mothers, sisters, business women, role models and music artists. In the film, they speak candidly about class, race and gender in pursuing their passions as female MCs. From hip-hop's birthplace in the Bronx to the ladies of grime on London's east side and points in between, this worldwide documentary takes viewers on a vibrant tour of urban culture and musical movement.
