Filmmaker, activist, and DJ, Laylo's new film is breathtaking! Both activists and artists, Loira (a.k.a DJ Laylo) and Eli Efi have worked together to open up minds and spread global awareness about issues in South America. Loira's new documentary ESTILO HIP HOP, which premiered on PBS last weeks, profile three artists (including Eli Efi, himself) who view Hip Hop as a tool for social change. Peep the synopsis and the trailer below. 
Estilo Hip Hop is a feature length documentary that chronicles the lives of three hip hop enthusiasts from Brazil, Chile, and Cuba who firmly believe that hip hop can change the world. As we delve into the lives of Eli Efi, Guerrillero Okulto, and Magia, we learn of three inspirational leaders responsible for mobilizing young people to become politically active. However, the personal issues affecting the three protagonists prove to be as overwhelming as the challenges posed by their political work. As the stakes assume a greater risk, Eli Efi, Guerrillero, and Magia make life-altering decisions that ultimately impact the course of their lives and that of the hip hop movement.
Also, be sure to check the ESTILO HIP HOP site for more info on how to view the full film.
