                                       Los Angeles, CA -- Multi award-winning Independent filmmaker Bob Bryan took his

                                       camera on the road (in search of Hip-Hop) to the Heartland of America. "I figured if

                                       Hip-Hop exists here, then it's pretty much everywhere! " Bob was invited to document

                                       a historic four (4) day Hip-Hop Summer Workshop conducted at Metro High School, in

                                       Cedar Rapids, Iowa which resulted in Graffiti Verite’ 5 (GV5): The Sacred Elements

                                       of Hip-Hop.   According to Jim Jacobmeyer, Art Instructor at Metro High School. GV5

                                       - Jim Jacobmeyer Speaks - Breaking it Down in the Middle: Pop and Hip-Hop, Hip-

                                       hop culture is alive and well in Cedar Rapids, Iowa and we invited Bob to come down

                                       to Cedar Rapids  to discover  how a local alternative High School was using the four

                                       (4) elements of Hip-hop to integrate the visual and performing arts into one summer

                                       program.  

 

 

 

"Our summer school  workshop was inspired by Bob Bryan's  first documentary on Graffiti Art

called Graffiti Verite’, a collection of interviews done with West Coast Graffiti artists. 

The artists talked about Graffiti as being a part of a bigger culture, which included the elements

of graffiti art, dance, music and poetry.  We liked the idea of this mix. We knew this idea would

appeal to our students." - Jim Jacobmeyer, Art Instructor at Metro High School

 

 

In the just released  Accolade Award-Winning documentary Graffiti Verite’ 5 (GV5): The Sacred Elements

of Hip-Hop, Bob was able to capture the excitement of this innovative hands-on workshop. What emerges is a portrait of the educational value and liberating therapeutic power  contained within the unique elements of the contemporary Hip-hop movement. Turntablism (DJing),  Break-dancing, MC'ing (Rappin') and Graffiti Art are the four (4) Hip-Hop elements used in what Bob sees as a multifaceted communications modality and dynamic educational learning system.  

 

"I knew there was a great misconception about what Hip-Hop was really all about, partially due  to the

massive negative propaganda generated by the media. The public relations problem with  Hip-Hop is

that only the stereotypical bling-bling, darker, sinister and negative aspects of certain outrageous

lifestyles are given airplay. The beautiful positive poetry, music, dance and art of  young people focusing

upon identity, self-esteem, community, social issues and their future are rarely, if ever, given an opportunity t

o exist in the public dialogue of ideas.

 

In GV5, I wanted to take a closer look at the facts. It turns out that the four elements of Hip-Hop,

if used creatively, can give our educators an invaluable tool to bridge the communications and

learning dyslexia that exist between students, educators and the 4R's. It’s time to explore this

type of multi-intelligence model and integrate its positive potential usefulness into the curriculum,

as a method of connecting with today's youth."  - Bob Bryan, Director GV5
