Rising Sun (original title)
A film by Fabiane Kimoto
“You have to give up your old life before you can begin a new one” is the motto of the eight members of the Roc Kidz Crew, one of the most authentic hip-hop formations currently on the circuit. The dancers leave their middle-class lives and high material expectations behind them and make their way as a multicultural break-dancing crew to the South, on a tour that promises neither profit nor fame. A journey full of surprises and positive encounters: with their love of dance, music and freedom, the Roc Kidz Crew radiates a pure zest for life that crosses all social and ethnic borders.
