Shake The Dust – Hiphop Speaks Truth (Documentary, Best!)
Ein absolutes Must-See, bitte nehmt Euch unbedingt die Zeit: in der „Shake The Dust„-Dokureihe („Blogumentary“) geht es um die Breakdancing-Kultur weltweit, besonders in den so-called „Strugglin‘ Communities“. Der Verantwortliche Dude Adam von Loose Luggage war dafür in 7 Städten auf der ganzen Welt unterwegs:
„Shake the Dust“ is a feature documentary that tells the stories of break-dancers in struggling communities around the globe that, although separated by cultural boundaries and individual struggles, are intrinsically tied to one another through their passion for break-dancing and hip-hop culture.
Hip-hop music, through rhythm and poetry, tells a unique story–it balances on a line between party music and prophesy. „Shake the Dust“ is one piece of that story– a story of wildness and grace. A story that seeks to show the beauty of individuals in places like Sana’a, Yemen, Kampala Uganda, and Port au Prince, Haiti. A story that shows how breakdancing– which seems to be transcending even hip-hop itself– ties them together and gives them hope.“
