The rawness of El Michels Affair music reminds me of some of my favorite b-boys & b-girls and I wanted to show that connection in this video. I was inspired by the B-Boy Summit ’99 video. This was an event that almost turned into a riot when the police showed up and shut the event down for false reasons. The story focuses on a b-boy crew who’s practice session is interrupted when the police arrive. One of the dancers, Wonda, decides to run and ends up being shot. She knows she is badly injured but chooses to go out doing what she loves most: dancing.
