Last night I watched Benson Lee's doco -- Planet B-Boy -- as part of the Sydney Film Festival. The film is an inspiring look at the least commercialised area of hip-hop culture -- breakdancing or b-boying. It traces several crews from South Korea, Japan, France and the US as they compete in the 2005 Battle of the Year in Germany. The skills, athleticism and sheer power of the dancing shown in this film is awesome.
I rate the film highly as it makes you think twice about B-Boys and breakdancing. These are mostly international crews that are focused on dancing and trying to earn a living. The film gives us the personal stories behind the South Korean, Japanese and French B-Boy crews which are Last for One, Ichigeki, Gamblers and Phase T.
YouTube also has some wicked clips from the film online. See:
