World Premiere: SXSW 2013

Californian hip-hop duo Silibil n’ Brains were going to be massive. What no-one knew was the pair were really students from Scotland, with fake American accents and made up identities.

The Great Hip Hop Hoax is a film about truth, lies and the legacy of faking everything in the desperate pursuit of fame. The American dream, told by people who’d never even been to America.

Feature documentary (92 Mins) directed and produced by Jeanie Finlay, produced by Al Morrow

A Met film / Glimmer Films co-production for BBC Scotland, BBC Storyville and Creative Scotland.


Character designs by Jon Burgerman
