VIDEO: Bouncing Cats (trailer)

Hip-hop is truly a global force. And if you don’t know that by now, you need your head examined. It transcends religion, age and nationality. We can sometimes take that for granted. But when you step back and examine how popular a music and culture like hip-hop is, it’s almost staggering. The documentary Bouncing Cats is an educational and raw look into how hip-hop can infiltrate an African territory for the better. Powerful stuff here. And this is only the trailer.

Here’s an official description for the upcoming film:

Bouncing Cats is the inspiring story of one man’s attempt to create a better life for the children of Uganda using the unlikely tool of hip-hop with a focus on b-boy culture and breakdance. In 2006, Abraham “Abramz” Tekya, a Ugandan b-boy and AIDS orphan created Breakdance Project Uganda (BPU). The dream was to establish a free workshop that would empower, rehabilitate, and heal the community by teaching youth about b-boy culture.
