Since it's inception, the true power in breakdancing is the ability to bring people together. From the boogie down Bronx to a village in Uganda, the art form's impact is felt around the world in ways most people could never imagine. In 2015, NY rap legend Nas teamed up with journalist-turned filmmaker Adam Sjöberg to create a music documentary on the influence of breakdancing extending from the hoods of America to slums, favelas and ghettos around the world. Shake the Dust treats breakdancing with as much beauty and reverence as ballet, presented with some of the most jaw-dropping, beautifully shot moves captured by camera. And the stories behind the dancers are just as breath taking. Promised offscreen after tonight's screening is an audience Q&A with Sjöberg and Ugandan hip hop artist Mark Kaweesi.
