Among B-Boys

Among B-Boys

Fri, 05/02/2014 - 9:00pm

Explores the intersection of rugged urban b-boyin’ (breakdancing) and the traditional roots of Hmong culture. But instead of the usual generational conflict, Among B-Boys, airing Friday, May 2, 2014 at 9 p.m. on WXXI World, unveils a story of the modern and the traditional actually affirming each other, visually weaving between the older generation’s memory of ethnicity and war and the younger generation’s toprocks, footwork, freezes and power-moves. Woon focuses on three breakers – Mpact and Villn of Underground Flow, and Sukie of Velocity/Soul Rivals Crewmdash; who reveal the path towards b-boy cultural citizenship in America, but continually steer us back to their families, history and community.
