In AMONG B-BOYS, director Christopher Woon explores a movement of Hmong youth with a starting point in the California Central Valley. Just like the rest of the B-Boy/B-Girl world, many of them are on a quest for respect and even fame through their skills. In this search for success in the Breaking world, these youth must also navigate their way and strike a balance between their identities as Hmong and B-Boys.
GLOBAL PINAY STYLE documents the rich hip hop dance scene that Filipinas are creating in the Philippines and their creative influences around the world. Focusing on members of the Philippine All Stars and Stellar, the film shows how Pinays are central in carving out spaces for a vibrant dance subculture, proving their skills for a global audience.
