SHAKE THE DUST, a Global Look at Hip Hop & Break Dance / .@Nas

From Executive Producer NAS
SHAKE the DUST 

 Running Time: 85 minutes 


From executive producer and 13-time Grammy nominated rapper Nasir "Nas" Jones and journalist-turned-filmmaker Adam Sjöberg comes the buoyant, globe-trotting film SHAKE THE DUST

Hip-hop and the acrobatic breakdancing culture that arose in tandem with it may have started on the streets of The Bronx, but their reach is now decidedly worldwide. 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 with a universally-appealing energy. 

With a propulsive soundtrack of beats and samples from both emerging emcees and established superstars like Nas, Common and Talib Kweli, as well as some of the most jaw-dropping moves ever committed to film, SHAKE THE DUST is an inspiring tribute to the uplifting power of music and movement. By highlighting some of the most talented crews in the poorest urban neighborhoods of Colombia, Yemen, Uganda and Cambodia, Sjoberg weaves together the stories of rappers, Djs and b-boys across three continents, revealing how breakdancing today acts as a positive force for social change.
