This documentary was originally conceived and shot in 1997 by three amateur filmmakers (Dawn Mabalon, Lakan de Leon, Jonathan Ramos). They set out to create a document of the Pilipinos making noise in the Los Angeles hip hop scene at the time.

At this point, Pilipinos had yet to gain their full due as b-boys/girls, DJs, graf artists and emcees. Now as Pilipinos become more and more recognized for their skills, it is important to look back at a few of the pioneers who helped lay the foundation for the next generation of Pilipino/a artists.

Enjoy the definitive version of Beats, Rhymes, and Resistance.
