Synopsis

Sookee - Of Seahorses and Closets is a multilayered and intimate portrait of Sookee, a famous queer-feminist Hip Hop Artist and left-wing activist in Germany. She fights against sexism, homophobia and racism - in german society and, especially, in german hip-hop for years now. Whether she’s putting on makeup, performing on big stages, giving lectures to students or at schools, rapping at a lesbian wedding, cooking with her mother or writing lyrics in a berlin park - her life and thoughts revolve always around her message: Tolerance and love instead of discrimination and stereotyping. Diversity instead of binary thinking. Seahorses instead of closets.
