Nobody Knows My Name tells the story of women who are connected by their love for hip-hop music. Documentarian Raimist explores a fascinating and diverse feminist community, which yearns to find a place in a male-dominated subculture that is, in itself, marginalized. Ultimately, Raimist succeeds in empowering these self-actualized women by giving them the voice for which they struggle.
Scene Not Heard seeks to tell the story of these women as they struggle to succeed in a male-dominated industry. Features interviews with Lady B, Schoolly D and Rennie Harris, plus Bahamadia, Ursula Rucker, and current talents such as; the Jazzyfatnastees, Ms. Jade and Lady Alma.
