Talking About My New Film Project On Downtown With Rich Kimball Radio Show

My new project.

Support VBJ’s writing on this blog:

I was on the radio show Downtown with Rich Kimball (AM 620 WZON) last night along with Zac Allaf, a.k.a Assasi, talking about my new documentary project which is, conveniently, about the Syrian hip hop artist Zac Allaf, a.k.a Assasi. This is what I’ve been working on for the past few weeks and will continue putting the pieces together on throughout this year. For lack of a better term, it’s kind of an experimental “documentary-musical,” but I won’t spoil this too much here, please listen to the radio broadcast below to find out what this is all about:

The host, Rich Kimball.

I will share more about this project on this blog and my YouTube channel as it progresses.
