Planet B-boy

Benson Lee, 98 min, USA.

Osaka, Paris, Seoul and Las Vegas are the backdrops to these intimate stories about a bunch of breakdancers' will to reach their dreams despite the world's - and their families' - unacceptance. A dancer in Las Vegas awaits his big breakthrough, a Korean son seeks his father's blessing while a 12-year old boy in France confronts his family's racism. They all face each other in a "Battle of the year" in Germany where their skills are put to the test, together with dancers from 18 other countries, as they compete for the title as World Champion.

Planet B-boy is a showcase of brilliant dance numbers, incredible demonstrations of strength and dextery and shows how streetdance from New York has evolved into an inspiring art form for a new generation of kids from around the world.
