Definition: Aya de Leon looks at the process of Bay area spoken word artist Aya de Leon. Whether dissecting images of women in hip-hop, or exposing the constructs of gender and beauty, the political and fresh Aya de Leon makes you think, makes you laugh, makes you cry, makes you listen. This short 2007 documentary explores the writer/poet/activist’s artistic process, and the lives she touches as she moves through the world.
