Nobody Knows My Name

Rachel Raimist's lively 2003 video about women in hip-hop—rappers, break dancers, DJs, and one rapper's wife—gives a good sense of the obstacles they face in this sexist field. A sequence of a male performer role-playing with a woman onstage illustrates how females are viewed, and the subjects explain that they're more likely to be judged for their looks than their talent, but one guesses they've had uglier experiences that aren't being told. Raimist builds a decent sense of rhythm through camera movement and editing, and the film suggests that these strong and independent women can make a place for themselves, though the sobering end titles suggest that none of their careers has taken off either. With Medusa, T-Love, Leschea, Asia One, and DJ Symphony.
