ONLY LOOKED AT THIS CUZ STORYBOARD IS IN IT, LOOKS GOOD THO
Flex Is Kings is an independent feature length documentary about street dance in Brooklyn. It’s almost done and now we need your help!
This is a story of urban improbability. East New York is an impoverished section of Kings County with one of the highest crime rates in the borough. And yet a large and growing group of young men have transformed their streets into a stage.
Flex Is Kings looks at the culture of flexing, a unique and vibrant dance form in deep Brooklyn, and the realities of the dancers who practice it. We, the filmmakers, have followed a group of dancers for over two years and have shot over 275 hours of film.
Flex dancing channels the grittiness of East New York into choreographed violence: guns battle, bones break, and hearts are ripped from chests. Using dance to illustrate their everyday lives and their inner aspirations, dancers jump into beautiful and imaginative dream logic and feats of daring: monsters roam train cars, young lovers meet, souls fly from bodies.
