Hendrix, an aspiring young rapper, sets his sights on underground rap battles in the slums of Pandacan, Manila. At a time of political turmoil and terrifying uncertainty, Respeto is a timely reminder that true hip hop has a political voice.

Program Note

Manila’s slums are hard to live in. Especially for children, children in slums learn everything from the streets, not from home. The orphan Hendrix lives a life on the streets with his friends. For them, hip-hop is not just music. Like the birth of hip-hop in the United States, this is a street life, struggle and death. Rap is the most important language to describe their lives. Hendricks has to sell drugs and fight to survive. For them, hip-hop becomes life itself. He got into trouble with an old man who owns a bookstore selling used books, but he admits his mistake and becomes friends. They’re all street neighbors. Repesto shows how children in the slums learn hip-hop and grow up with rapping. Rap is not just a form of music but the most important expression and work that shows their lives and lives. The overflowing energy in the scene of Hendrix’s rap battle is so real. The energy of reality is overflowing. Just watching the live scenes makes Repesto fun and sad. (KIM Bong-seok)
