Where My Girls
United States, 21 min., Color
In the underground hip hop scene of New York, the old adage “if you can make it here, you can make it anywhere” rings true for many rappers seeking to make a name for themselves. But in a scene that struggles to stay genuine in the face of clout chasers and rising rents, making it has taken on a more ambiguous meaning. In this short documentary, three queer women reflect on the creativity, community, and hustle required to make it in a culture that has left them to their own devices. “Where My Girls” is an homage to the everyday struggle facing marginalized artists and the scrappy DIY attitude that first gave rise to hip hop.
