Hip Hop STEMposium Free Screening

| Central Technical School

It’s the 3rd annual Free Your Mind – Hip Hop STEMposium
free community film screening of Shake the Dust

Shake the Dust is a feature documentary film from director and photographer Adam Sjöberg and rap superstar Nasir “Nas” Jones about breakdancing and hip-hop culture in the most unlikely places. Ugandan b-boy Karim narrates this visually stunning tale that weaves a colourful, cultural tapestry of dance, music and stories from the drug-and-poverty battered streets of Cambodia, the untouched wild landscape of Yemen, the almost utopian hip-hop scene in the underground of Colombia, and the embattled and poverty-stricken streets of Uganda. 
Panel Discussion after the film with J Rebel, Judi, Flex and Glen that will speak to the themes of Hip Hop / Breaking as empowerment, resistance, and community strength. Panelist Bios available here.
