About the Movie

From executive producer and rapper Nasir “Nas” Jones and journalist-turned-filmmaker Adam Sjöberg, Shake the Dust chronicles the influence of breakdancing, exploring how it strikes a resonant chord in the slums, favelas and ghettos of the world and far beyond. Showcasing some of the most jaw-dropping breakdancing moves ever committed to film, Shake the Dust is an inspiring tribute to the uplifting power of music and movement.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: For the most part "Shake the Dust" is a passably engaging ode to joy, the kind that feels special because it's hard-earned and communal, and it displaces adversity, however briefly. – Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times, May 14, 2015

Fresh: About a third of the movie is over before he gets past the dancing footage and vague references to social turmoil in each country, though the dancers he interviews compensate for the jarring shifts in location and the general lack of narrative flow. – Leor Galil, Chicago Reader, Apr 16, 2015
