ALL THE LADIES SAY!

March 13th, 2009 | Category: Art & Design,Community,Hip Hop Culture,Video



A┬á few weeks back my hommie Rokafella had a small intimate film screening of her documentary project called ALL THE LADIES SAY. I was very excited to see it because I KNOW this film is going to make a huge difference in many young women’s lives, especially young women in hip hop who want to break! Rokafella was one of the first b-girls I ever met in NY. When I saw her break, teach, mentor, write, sing, and SPEAK I was blown away. Being able to identify with someone from your own world, who goes through similar shit helps you connect like nothing else. She’s been my SHERO ever since. Her transformation shows an immense growth in being, so I am very happy she’s moving into film making. It’s time to take control over our images, and complex stories. BIG UPS to ladies in the film who are staying true to theirs and helping to share a positive image of women in hip hop.Check out the trailer it’s now officially UP!┬á

Handstyles by yours truly;)

ALL THE LADIES SAY is a film that highlights the lives of six iconic female street dancers from San Jose, Atlanta, Miami and Chicago, who have carved a niche in the physically challenging, male dominated breakdance world. Discussions about motherhood, sexual tension, femininity versus masculinity and the rap industry/mainstream images are a few of the themes explored by the main characters.
