“BAY AREA CYPHER” is a performance documentary that blends live freestyle presentations with short interviews to document the unique creativity of Hip Hop in the San Francisco Bay Area. The project expands beyond stereotypical presentations of commercialized Rap music by capturing the spontaneous and uniquely organic energy of free styling. Through the Hip Hop elements of rhyme and dance this documentary highlights the spiritual and communal aspects of Hip Hop culture, showing how improvisational freestyle is key to manifesting a higher energic vibration.
