Synopsis
Director Benson Lee explores the global resurgence of breakdancing in a documentary that proves the so-called "B-boying" trend didn't die with the passing of the '80s. An urban dance style that started on the streets of New York City in the 1970s, B-boying would become an important building block in the formation of hip-hop culture. Though the popularity of such films as Beat Street and Breakin' would inspire teens all over the world to jump onto the cardboard to "pop and lock," as with most trends the urban dance craze seemed to fade into oblivion as quickly as it had once proliferated. But some fads have an uncanny way of resurfacing just when they seem to have disappeared forever, and as limber youths from Germany, Japan, South Korea, France, and the United States all prepare to compete in the Battle of the Year, filmmakers follow the ambitious young dancers as they prepare to take part in one of the fiercest dance competitions on the planet. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide






GreenCine's Cathleen Rountree talked with director Benson Lee, following the success of Planet B-Boy at The San Francisco International Asian American Film Festival [where it  won the Audience Award for Best Doc - ed.] and Tribeca in the International Documentary Feature competition.
