Can we fight school failure through hip-hop dance?
After the very successful The gallant Indies, which took us behind the scenes of the opera reinvented with Krump sauce by Clément Cogitore and Bintou Dembélé, a new documentary on hip-hop dance is about to arrive in French cinemas. A film with a very different subject, however, since it tells the crazy experiment attempted by a Parisian high school: integrating students from working-class neighborhoods in difficulty thanks to urban dance.
Let’s go children is the latest documentary from a duo that is now a benchmark in the field: Thierry Demaizière and Alban Teurlai. We owe them Succession: History of a creation (about the choreographer Benjamin Millepied), Rocco, heavy and Movetheir latest work released in the form of a series on Netflix, which already immersed us in the world of contemporary dance, especially hip-hop.
Presented at the Berlin Film Festival, Let’s go children has just unveiled its trailer and will be released in theaters on April 6.
