Breakin' In: the Making of a Hip Hop Dancer

The images are everywhere: young black women shaking their assets in music videos featuring the biggest names in hip-hop. The dancers appear to be pretty props, gyrating to songs with misogynistic lyrics sung by mostly male rappers?images that appear to be exploitative and stereotypical. Yet auditions are highly sought after. This edgy documentary goes behind the scenes to follow Linda, Michelle and Tracy, three young women competing for roles in music videos. What drives these women to risk everything for a chance at fame? What role do these images play in shaping young women’s goals and identities? Through their personal accounts, we see how this world has impacted their personal values, career ambitions and concepts of beauty and self-image. A National Film Board of Canada production.
