Shake the Dust

Ongoing

Followed by a discussion with Martha Diaz, founder of the Hip-Hop Education Center

Dir. Adam Sjöberg. 2014, 83 mins. Digital projection. From executive producer and rapper Nasir “Nas” Jones and journalist-turned-filmmaker Adam Sjöberg, Shake the Dust 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 some of the most jaw-dropping breakdancing moves ever committed to film, Shake the Dust is an inspiring tribute to the uplifting power of music and movement.
