WAR OF WORDS is an entertaining, energising and inspiring documentary that lifts the lid on the fast growing UK Battle Rap scene. The film exposes the exciting subculture of Battle Rapping - an American derived art form that's exploding in the UK today. It reveals the battle rappers creativity, passion for language - and the ability to control their own destiny. It questions the notion of freedom of expression and explores the history and evolution of this unique subculture of Hip hop; from its origins in playgrounds and parks, through to nightclubs and competitions, it’s beginnings as a battle of quick-thinking freestyle wit through to its current incarnation as a form of well-rehearsed poetry and theatre. Whilst the language is often harsh and unflinching- the 'anything goes' philosophy of the battle arena results in one of the most harmonious and creative scenes in youth culture happening right now.
