“The sad fact is that most of the turtles are sick and injured because of plastic in their system. Did you know that a plastic bag floating in water looks exactly like a jelly fish? If I can’t tell the difference, how is Bob meant to?” says Davis, highlighting the effects of pollution on marine life.

From Peru, Micaela Del Sol Angulo’s ‘Rap from the vulva’ explores rap culture. 

Since what we understand by hip hop goes beyond its elements, and what I try to show is not only the elements that conform it but also what each one transmits through them, from breaking to rap, each one It shows and transmits what it does and is. Thus showing people outside this culture, that this is not only the commercial format that they sell to us today, but that for years a strong culture has been forming, full of history here in Peru.
