A screening of the short film about Audry Funk, a feminist rapper and social activist from Mexico who came to the U.S. to gain a better career and continue spreading her voice for social justice. Her new life seems more challenging than ever. Although having gained big influence in South America, she has to rap on the train and work in a restaurant to make a living in New York City. “To be real is hip-hop, and hip-hop is my weapon.” Audry takes that as her motto. No matter what job she does, how hard her situation is, she never gives up appealing for human rights.
Audry is strong as an activist; she is also vulnerable as a person who suffers a lot from nostalgia. This film is about how she rebuilds her life, her ego and her pride in New York City, as a woman, an immigrant, and an artist.
After the short film there will be a music performance and Q&A session with Audry Funk.
