PLANET B-BOY official trailer. DVD available now!

Standard

      I grew up watching a variety show, dreaming of being a dancer on such a show. In the 80’s I tried to learn break-dancing and was awful! So now I dance in my living room…but I dance!
     This movie was a very powerful ode to dance…it’s passion, the need to express what is inside you, how it translates around the world no matter the politics or language, how it unites people, and empowers them!
     This is about the history of break dancing, it’s evolution, it’s power. It portrays a global dance contest and various teams as they prepare for it, and also includes poignant personal stories of loss, families grappling to understand and support their child’s interests, that universal desire to find your heart’s desire and be able to express that and perhaps earn a living doing it.
      There are beautiful scenes of juxtaposition…a break dance performance in a Buddhist temple; a Canadian older break dancer working as a social worker teaching youth to break dance for healing, empowerment and scenes of them doing so with Native American elders; break dancing in the streets in Japan as women dressed as geishas stroll by with umbrellas.

      This movie was very inspiring as it reminded me once again about my dreams, my passion, my heart’s desires and to keep saying yes to them!

Captain Abu Raed Final US Trailer

Standard

Wonderful and beautiful movie! It was touching, inspiring, sad and uplifting as well! The main character is so loving, kind, curious, accepting and has great humility! HIs sacrifices for others are astounding. It is a movie about how others come into our lives and lead us in a new direction, in ways that are sometimes subtle, sometimes obvious, but important all the same.!

Penelope Trailer — Extended Version

Standard

I just watched this movie and although Entertainment weekly gave it and “F” (really???!!!!), I loved it. The sets were something out of a Timothy Burton movie, the costumes were quirky and creative, I loved the acting, and the story. I feel it is such a sweet and important story about growing up feeling like a freak. I know I did, getting rejected for many things. But at some point, in order to allow yourself to live your truth, manifest your dreams, share your gifts with the world, you have to come to a point of self-acceptance and beyond that self-love! This movie shows a young woman who never let her so called disfigurement stop her from being creative and adventurous so she finally steps out into the world, bravely, to experience life and learn to accept herself and allow love to flourish inside and out!
