De Ontmoeting - Maysa

Director: Leila Sahir
In short drama, a tough teenage girl relates to the hip-hop-influenced youth culture she grows up in. How does a young woman keep her footing in a male-dominated world?

The self-proclaimed rap queen Maysa gives as good as she gets. This fifteen-year-old tough cookie easily excels her fiends verbally when they are pleasantly chilling one night. But when the atmosphere changes, it turns out even eloquent young women can clam up. Short drama about trying to keep a footing in a male-dominated world, where boys and girls struggle with the borders between appropriate and inappropriate behaviour.
