Celebrated fashion photographer David LaChapelle makes his documentary filmmaking debut with a visually arresting film shot on the streets of Los Angeles' gritty South Central neighbourhood. After his community is nearly destroyed in the days of violent race riots after the 1992 Rodney King verdict, dancer Tommy "The Clown" Johnson creates a kinetic, athletic form of hip-hop competitive dancing that he dubs clowning, which later breaks through to the mainstream as krumping. 

This film is rated M and recommended for audiences 15 +.  

The Southeast Sessions

The Southeast Sessions are a collective of dancers who create an environment that is educational, fun and queer friendly for the Southeast dance/freestyle community.

The winners from each round will proceed to the final round. Accompanied by Southeast Sessions MC and DJ, this live performance will be totally LIT!!
