Directed and produced by Yanick Letourneau, United States of Africa: Beyond Hip Hop is a documentary that follows the journey of hip hop rapper Didier Awadi. Awadi travels through 40 countries on quest to create an album that pays tribute to revolutionary leaders and their shared dream of a united, independent Africa. The documentary draws the viewer into an artist's profound meditation on the power of music and the impact of political engagement - both individual and collective. It offers a picture of the past and a hopeful image of the future, using the languages of music and politics.
