DESCRIPTION

You Never Know is a political speech turned cathartic rap dance-party by Iranian-American artist Amy Khoshbin, who is running for City Council in Brooklyn in 2021. Exploring the culture of violence and fear-mongering that Western media perpetuates, Khoshbin shares her experiences at the gun show, asks what the opposite of a weapon could be, and encourages a group catharsis through video, dance, and rap music. Can political empowerment for change and liberating entertainment be the same thing?
