hip hop

Seattle!! Check out my friend Adam’s documentary feature film, Shake the Dust, that tells the story about breaking and hip hop in the developing world. It screens today and tomorrow at Seattle International Film Festival. Tickets and info here: http://www.siff.net/festival-2014/shake-the-dust.

When I moved to NYC just over 3 years ago, a friend told me I needed to meet Adam, but that he was in Yemen filming a documentary about breaking. I was immediately intrigued and inspired. Adam’s been working on this documentary for over 5 years, using a lot of his own resources along the way to finish the film. I’m super proud of him and can’t wait to see Shake the Dust on the big screen!

My friend, Adam Sjöberg, has recently launched a Kickstarter campaign to help fund his forthcoming feature documentary, Shake the Dustthat tells the stories of hip hop and breakdancing in struggling communities around the world. While I was busy moving to NY last year, Adam was busy filming in Yemen and has poured a lot of time, energy, and resources over the past four years into this film. Check out and support this project by visiting the Shake the Dust Kickstarter page
