Despite its genesis in the Bronx, hip-hop has become a universal language spoken across all cultures. This inspirational documentary pays tribute to the uplifting power of music and movement, chronicling three different breakdance crews from the slums of Uganda, Yemen and Cambodia, where hip-hop serves as a saving grace from drugs, depression and poverty.
Includes music from Executive Producer Nas and Oscar-winning artist Common. "'Shake the Dust' is an... 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
