This inspiring documentary explores the hopes and realities of the under-acknowledged and totally unfunded group of Brooklyn artists behind the urban dance movement known as “flexing.” Born in the Brooklyn neighborhood of East New York, the competitive dance style combines dramatic contortions, simulated violence, and flowing footsteps that are at once flights of fancy as well as poetic evocations of the streets. Shot over two years by local filmmakers, the film is structured around Battlefest, the central organizing event of the Flex movement, and focuses on some of the community’s key personalities.
