For the first time, Banlieue Project heads to the eastern French city of Strasbourg. We meet four female rappers with complicated pasts and razor-sharp lyrics: Bow, Gloria, Amina and Na2s. They connected over the Art & Miss project which mixes theatre and hip-hop, while reshaping the traditionally male rap scene in their image.

Banlieue Project is a platform for residents of France's disadvantaged suburbs to tell their own stories. We provide the camera and they film their experiences to break down clichés about the French "banlieues".
