Planet B-Boy

Benson Lee's exhilarating documentary jumps continents and crosses cultures to catch up with the modern-day evolution of breakdancing and the whole B-boy phenomenon. Turns out the urban '80s fad is alive and well in such diverse locations as Germany, Japan, South Korea and France (and the U.S., actually). Lee follows four breakdancing "crews" from around the world as they converge at the international Battle of the Year. By combining archival material, first-person interviews and some incredible performance footage, Planet B-Boy accomplishes three things: It presents some amazing personal stories, it traces the roots of hip-hop and it gives audiences one hell of a dance lesson. 95 minutes Unrated.
