Description

Shake the Dust
United States | 85 min | Director: Adam Sjöberg

From executive producer and rapper Nasir “Nas” Jones, this documentary pays tribute to the art of breakdancing and its influence on young people around the world.

Ugandan b-boy Karim narrates this visually stunning tale that weaves a colorful, cultural tapestry of dance, music and stories from the drug-and-poverty battered streets of Cambodia, the untouched wild landscape of Yemen, the almost utopian hip-hop scene in the underground of Colombia, and the embattled and poverty-stricken streets of Uganda.

Shake the Dust serves to illuminate the complicated but transcendent history of hip-hop itself. The story follows groups of b-boys, b-girls and hip hop artists in each of these struggling cultures who have surprisingly yet refreshingly found a voice of empowerment, resistance, and community strength in the world of hip-hop.

Also screening are the shorts, Jonah, by Andrew Michael Ellis, and Zero-G by Jannis Lenz.
