It’s official! Tiuna el Fuerte: Revolutionizing the Revolution, a Bmedia original we shot in Venezuela is here on your very own computer… So check check it!
Revolutionizing the Revolution is a documentary short following the hip-hop collective Tiuna el Fuerte, a local community collective that uses art, music and culture to transform the barrio of El Valle in Caracas, Venezuela.

The space is a “nucleus of endogenous cultural development,” exemplifying the concept of local development of the people, for the people, by the people that finds its roots in modern day Venezuela.
