DOXA is excited to bring a FREE outdoor moving screening to the heart of the downtown. Pack your blankets and head down to Robson Square on Tuesday, July 21st to see the Vancouver premiere of Bryan Evan’s Hip Hop-eration. The film will be screened at 9:00pm at the north end of Robson Square, 800 Robson Street (the side closest to the Vancouver Art Gallery).
This deeply charming film captures a group of elderly New Zealanders who embark on the adventure of a lifetime when they set their sights on competing in the 2013 World Hip Hop Champions in Las Vegas. Whether it’s long lost love affairs or anti-nuke protests, each of these men and women (ranging in age from 65 to 94) are revealed to be characters in their own right. Under the fierce guidance of their teacher and coach Billie Jordan, the group comes together, popping and locking in preparation for their Las Vegas premiere. “You’re all going… even if it’s in an urn,” says Jordan. But as the competition heats up and the dancers take to the stage, something entirely unexpected happens.
