The Otherside trailer

Design Indaba FilmFest 2014 presents "The Otherside", a documentary on the Seattle Hip Hop scene in the do-it-yourself, digital age of music.

Part of the event

Known by music fans as the birthplace of Jimi Hendrix and grunge rock, there is a new music scene brewing in the Pacific Northwest.

Seattle Hip Hop artists are redefining the genre and exploding onto the national scene as they attempt to capitalise on the do-it-yourself digital age of the music world. Some have found success, but others wonder if the dream of “making it” in a crowded industry is still attainable.

While the fame and attention mounts, The Otherside, directed by Daniel Torok, gives you a firsthand look at the eclectic mix of artists that define northwest Hip Hop, as they work to conquer a genre that has long been inaccessible to a city void of major labels. 

The Otherside is showing at the Design Indaba FilmFest 2014 on 23 February at the Maiden's Cover Drive-in. Buy your ticket here
