Everything you want to know about post communist Polish hip hop* (*but don't dare to ask)

YOU ARE GOD is the biopic about Magik, Focus and Rahim, who under the name Paktofonika became the most influential force in Polish hiphop during the late 90s and early 00s. In a period when Poland was shaking off decades of Soviet influence, the three young men gave voice to a disillusioned generation struggling to balance a communist past with a free market future. Thankfully, the film is not only for fans of Paktofonika – rather, it is a dramatic and involving story about the personal lives of a group of talented individuals in a time of social upheaval.
