Ugandan hip-hop doc

Trailer for “Diamonds in the Rough,” a documentary about anti-war and -corruption themed hip-hop in Uganda. Looks fascinating and inspiring, though I’m just a tad troubled that, as with Wim Winders’ wonderful “Buena Vista Social Club” film, the transcendent climax involves the musicians from the developing world making a triumphant and adulatory tour in the West.
