Directed by David LaChapelle.
Lions Gate Films, Los Angeles, 2005.
Photographer David LaChapelle explores the fascinating and infectious style of hip-hop dancing known as krumping in his feature-length film debut. Created in Los Angeles in the wake of the 1992 riots, krumping is a spectacularly physical and flamboyant form of movement bursting with passion, energy, and jubilation. In addition to capturing the krumpers in mid-motion, LaChapelle explores sobering personal stories marked by broken homes, domestic violence, and gang activity. In both instances, LaChapelle communicates the ways in which dancing offers a positive release from the difficulties of inner-city life. 'A helter-skelter blast of energy, punching out in so many directions you don't know where to look first' (Newsday).
