Trailer For Tribeca Film Festival Doc Selection ‘Flex Is Kings’ (Contemporary Urban Dance Movement)

Trailer For Tribeca Film Festival Doc Selection 'Flex Is Kings' (Contemporary Urban Dance Movement)

Here’s a project we’ve been following for at least a year now, all set to make its world premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival next month.

We featured its Kickstarter campaign, when the filmmakers (Deidre Schoo and Michael Beach Nichols) were trying to raise $40,000 to be used in post-production; they ended up raising over $44,000.

Needless to say, the film is complete, and we’ll get our first look at it at Tribeca in a matter of weeks!

The feature documentary is titled Flex Is Kings and is
described as a feature length social and cultural documentary about the
community behind the contemporary urban dance movement, called “Flexing,”
in Brooklyn, New York. The film explores the hopes and realities of
this under-acknowledged and totally unfunded group of Do-It-Yourself artists.

The project was selected as an IndieWire “Project of the Week” early in 2012 – a recognition that comes with digital distribution consultation from SnagFilms (parent company of IndieWire).

So congrats to the filmmakers on getting past this major hurdle and I’m
sure we’ll be hearing and seeing more of Flex Is Kings in the next
year, as it begins its film festival circuit travels.

A brand-spanking new trailer has been released, and is embedded below, so check it out:
