Master - David Lescot - Actes Sud Papiers
In a secondary school class, the teacher announces an oral test about the subject taught: hip-hop culture. The selected student must mention major works, big names, and important dates. Practice rapidly takes priority over theory, the student and the professor start rapping and the exam is transformed into a clash, a battle, a graffiti competition.
