Mobile Kino presents: Yallah! Underground
Yallah! Underground was filmed during a period of great change within the Arab world. From 2009 till 2013 (before, during and after the Arab Spring) director Farid Eslam and his crew followed some of the most influential and progressive artists in Arab underground culture and documented their work, dreams and fears in an ever-changing environment.
For years these young Arab artists have been struggling to express themselves freely in their societies. They represent a new generation of Arabs who seamlessly integrate aspects of different cultures and philosophies into their lifestyle and their work.
During the Arab Spring, like many others of this new generation, local artists had high hopes for the future and took part in the protests. However, after years of turmoil and instability, young Arabs now have to challenge both old and new problems, being torn between feelings of disillusion and a vague hope for a better future.
