This documentary tells the story of the arms-length relationship between the Jewish-Israeli rapper Subliminal and the Arab-Israeli rapper Tamer Nafar. Both are pioneers in Israeli rap music, but from opposite ends of the political spectrum. Subliminal presents a nationalistic Jewish message against Arab violence and terrorism, while Tamer's songs are about Palestinian oppression under the Israeli occupation and the hardships of Arab-Israeli life within Israel.

Channels of Rage is not just a movie it's a phenomenon!
4 August 2005 | by anat1111See all my reviews

Is it even possible for young Israeli and Arab hip-hop musicians to be friends in times of the Intifada? Israeli filmmaker Anat Halachmi has examined this question in her documentary Channels of Rage, in which she introduces two rappers, Subliminal and Tamer.Israeli Subliminal is described in the local rap scene as 'the one who rediscovered Hebrew language'. Whilst, during the course of the film, he turn more and more patriotic, and are labelled extreme rightists. Arab-Israeli TN goes in his own direction. He starts rapping in Arabic instead of Hebrew and English in order to reach out to his own people, and becomes more involved in the Palestinian cause. Their paths separate but still remain interrelated. The Excellent movie shows an original angle of the Jewish-Arab relations. The movie draws a tragic portrait of two rappers. An apocalyptic frightening, and threatening vision that is coming upon all of us. Channels of Rage is not just a movie it's a phenomenon!.
