Feel Good Video of the Day: B-Boy Culture Breaking Out of Mumbai’s Biggest Slum

bboy-vikram-mumbai4bboy-vikram-mumbai3bboy-vikram-mumbai1

I really enjoyed this mini-doc that is essentially a lighthearted Indian B-boy version of Billy Elliot. 15-year old Vikram lives in Dharavi, a slum in Mumbai, India. It’s the largest slum in India, and actually one of the largest in the world. He tells his parents he’s going out to get milk but secretly he is learning to break.

Watch “The SlumGods of Mumbai: Hope, Hip-Hop and The Dharavi Way” below!

Skate Video of the Day: Gold and Grey

I saw this video on The Berrics way back in June (I mentioned it here) and loved it, but there was no embed link to share the video. Really excited for it to finally show up on Vimeo! This is Kyle Camarillo’s entry into the REDirect film series, a collaboration between RED cameras and The Berrics, featuring 12 visionary filmmakers.

This was my favourite of the entire series, and its pretty much two guys, Miles Silvas and Jack Curtin, tearing up San Francisco for the entire clip. Love the sense of speed in it. Watch “Gold and Grey” below.
