Master - David Lescot - Actes Sud Papiers
In a college class, the teacher announces an oral question on the subject taught: hip-hop culture. The designated student must cite major works, big names, important dates. Quickly, the practice takes precedence over theory, the student and the teacher begin to rap and the exam turns to clash, to battle, to the graffiti contest.
