FLIP THE RECORD

FLIP THE RECORD

Tired of conforming to what is expected, 14-year-old Vanessa dares to break the mold by learning the art of turntablism behind her older brother’s back. Set in the early 1980s in the era of hip-hop’s game-changing influence within the Filipino-American community, FLIP THE RECORD is a coming-of-age story about a teenager realizing that in order to “flip” the narrative, you must dare to play to the sound of your own beat.
