Planet B-Boy screens as part of Breaking on Film, a mini film festival to celebrate Cypher during Sydney Festival
Planet B-Boy goes inside the international, underground b-boy scene in Japan, France, South Korea, and the United States, as they prepare for the event of their lives: The Battle of the Year in Germany, the oldest and largest B-boy event in the world. Eighteen nations send their best crews to compete at the “world cup of b-boying”.
Coming from vastly different cultures, what the b-boys share above all is their willingness to sacrifice everything for b-boying as a way of life. By gaining personal insight into their lives, we see that it is their ultimate form of self-expression and creativity.
With little chance of recognition or financial gain, the b-boys struggle to maintain their passion and love for their art, the original essence of hip-hop in its purest form.
Planet B-Boy will screen with short film:
Sofles – Limitless
Shot and Edited by Selina Miles
Music by DJ Butcher
The aim in our dance routine was to produce coherent visual effects with the audio glitches we hear in the music track. In an empiric research phase of three weeks we combined technique from the dance style popping with new innovative vocabulary and cultivated the sequences to the point where it became performable and convincing. We shot the clip in a session of three takes in Berlin’s “Narva Yards” an old light bulb factory building that provided us with the perfect setting.
