Shake the Dust Documentary & Film Screening, followed by Q&A with Ugandan Hip Hop Artist Mark Kaweesi and Filmmaker Adam Sjoberg

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.  Following the screening, enjoy a Q&A segment with Hip Hop Artist Mark Kaweesi from Uganda and Filmmaker Adam Sjoberg
