Ugandan kids use b-boy culture and hip hop to give themselves immeasurable confidence.
With the complex web of issues associated with foreign aid in Africa, this documentary makes the excellent point that a good investment is giving the youth something no one can take away from them. Bouncing Cats shows the efforts of Abraham Tekya who created Breakdance Project Uganda, hoping to rehabilitate and empower kids who have experienced the worst of Uganda’s cruel past. Common, K’naan, Mos Def, and Crazy Legs (creator of the ‘windmill’ dance move) are among the many celebrities that narrate the film and collaborate with this ground level initiative.
