Synopsis

In the early 1970s the Bronx district in New York City famously gave birth to Hip hop, but rap music wasn’t the only iconic by-product. The method of "cross-mixing" and "scratching" obscure records got people’s heads spinning, quite literally. The new sound and infectious rhythm quickly inspired street dancers to perform acrobatic jumps, head-balancing and athletic spins – breakdancing had begun. Footage and interviews of the first b-boys combine neatly here with an engaging explanation of the art form’s key role in Hip hop's meteoric rise from humble beginnings to a mainstay of western popular culture today. Along with the jaw-dropping dance sequences and mesmeric outfits, this documentary delivers an engaging and alternative examination of the genesis of the Hip hop revolution.

What our educators say

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
