Dreams > Exertion.
Their neighborhood has one of the highest crime rates in Brooklyn, but it’s been transformed by a group of guys whose flex dancing “channels the grittiness of East New York into choreographed violence.”
Flatbush. Brooklyn. Flex is Kings?
Kickstart this: from crime and death and poverty to community, exertion, triumph…art.
FLEX IS KINGS is a feature length social and cultural documentary about the community behind the contemporary urban dance movement, called “Flexing”, in Brooklyn, New York. The film explores the hopes and realities of this under-acknowledged and totally unfunded group of Do-It-Yourself urban artists.
FLEX IS KINGS is seeking funding for a rough cut. Please visit:http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/deidre/flex-is-kings or contact [email protected] for more information.
