Shake the Dust, Adam Sjöberg, 2014; 83 minutes.

From executive producer and rapper Nasir “Nas” Jones and journalist-turned-filmmaker Adam Sjöberg, this feature documentary chronicles the influence of breakdancing, exploring how it strikes a resonant chord in the slums, favelas and ghettos of the world and far beyond. Showcasing breakdancers in Yemen, Uganda, Colombia, and Cambodia, Shake the Dust is an inspiring tribute to the uplifting power of music and movement.
