Two filmmakers dive into an ancient rite of manhood in Islamic Java – the tender and raucous sport of the singing doves, the Indonesian Nascar. When General Zainuri announces The National Perkutut Championship, thousands of Muslim men arrive at the grounds. Seven hundred poles stand in the center. Men hoist their doves – perkutut – seven meters up and dangle them ina sea of colorful cages.
A team of judges passes trought the forest of tall posts straining to discern the birds magical coos. If the judges are impressed they score a bird´s dong by tacking a small flag to the pole. After three hours a winner is declared. Winning perkutut sell for tens of milion rupiahs – tens of thousands of dollars.

Can rap be a way out of the prison?
Hip Hop is often associated with drugs and violence and therefore seen by many as a way into prison, but Alma Negra, DJ Roky and New York, three inmates at Distrial prison in Bogota, Colombia, demonstrate the opposite. For two hours a day they are allowed to leave the courtyard to write and practice their music. Rap enables them to protest and share their experiences in life. This film tells their story and the impact Hip Hop has on them.
