Award-winning film Bouncing Cats, the inspiring story of one man’s attempt to create a better life for the children of Uganda through hip hop, makes its US television premiere on Documentary Channel on Saturday, November 19, 2011 at 8:00pm (EST/PST) and again at 11:00pm that same night.
The film, narrated by Common and featuring interviews with Will.I.Am, and K ’Naan, follows the legendary Crazy Legs of the Rock Steady Crew and b-boy Abramz, the founder of Breakdance Project Uganda (BPU), on a journey to unify, empower and inspire youth in the war torn region that has been called one of the worst places on earth to be a child.
Produced by Red Bull Media House (RBMH) and directed by Australian filmmaker and photographer Nabil Elderkin, the film toured the festival circuit in 2010 and 2011, earning many awards along the way. View the trailer.
