This documentary follows BBoy JUSTROC and BBoy FOOTLOOSE over a period of 6 months. In this film they about their charity Break Mission, and what break dancing means to them. The film features dancers from all across the UK, and also footage from one of the charities in Malaysia. This is the final version of a shorter documentary I had made earlier this year.
The original concept of break mission was inspired by a Break Dance event held on October 9th 2010 in the Bronx (New York). Hosted by bboy ABY from The Bronx Boys Rocking Crew (TBB). Break Mission's vision is to provide free entry to all participants and spectators attending the event. The only catch is that people must bring non perishable goods (canned foods / clothing) as their entry. The goods will then be given to a local charity organisation, currently Wood Street Mission in Manchester city centre.
My aim was to capture the essence of this charity and the bboy/hiphop culture abd how about important it is for the people who are apart of it. The film was shot shot on a zero budget and has been a labour of love.
