“Shake The Dust” Film Screening

Friday, June 17 at 6pm

Rosel H. Schewel Theater | $5 admission




Riverviews Artspace and The Listening are coming together to present “Shake the Dust”. Join us for this special film screening on Friday, June 17th at 6pm. Admission is $5, and doors will open at 5:30pm. The Rosel H. Schewel Theater is located on the ground floor of Riverviews Artspace. After the film, there will be a discussion moderated by Leslie King.

“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 colorful, 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. “Shake the Dust” serves to illuminate the complicated but transcendent history of hip-hop itself. The story follows groups of b-boys, b-girls and hip hop artists in each of these struggling cultures who have surprisingly yet refreshingly found a voice of empowerment, resistance, and community strength in the world of hip-hop.
