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!

Amelia Rudolph and Roel Seeber, two aerial performers from a dance group called Bandaloop, perform a breathtaking dance routine on the side of Oakland’s City Hall during the Art + Soul Festival. I didn’t know vertical dancing was a thing. Would be really cool to shoot an entire movie like this, with different backdrops on different buildings. Watch the video below.
