RAPublic is the first feature film dedicated to Czech rap. James Cole, Hugo Toxxx and Orion on the stage, but primarily off it. Three prominent Czech rappers, ten pieces, ten lively – and even enlivening – film situations. Introducing a garrulous professor of linguistics, cheeky children from a Roma ghetto in Karviná, a curious photographer, a strict registry clerk, accidental passers-by in Prague or the “almighty” Hana Hegerová; add to that the members of a classic music trio, basic school students from Prague’s South City, representatives of the Word and Voice association and even the savior of the Czech language, Josef Jungmann, himself. Hip hop on the way from its narrow subcultural ghetto to the world. Citizens of the Czech RAPublic and the Czech Republic come together for a communal “freestyle.” Orion explaining to a linguist what “charáč” means; a DJ trio jamming with a chamber music trio; James Cole confessing his love for the film Twelve Monkeys to a registry clerk; Hugo Toxxx telling Express Radio listeners that Czechs are metalheads at heart. And as “Hana Hegerová loves hyphy”, it all culminates in a collective anthem.
