Coury Deeb is a good friend of mine and member of Sojourn, who lives at the intersection of art and justice. And now the film production company Coury founded, Nadus Films, is premiering one of the coolest events of June in our city.
Next week, June 21st, Nadus is hosting the More Dance – Less Hate tour here in Louisville, KY, in promotion of their latest movie BBOY for LIFE, which tells the story of gang life and breakdancing in Guatemala. BBOY for LIFE asks the question, “How can someone born into a world of violence and death find hope for a better world?”
This event includes the following:
- Meet b-boy Cheez and b-boy Gato from the film BBOY for LIFE and see them compete
- See regional b-boy crews battle on stage for a cash prize of $1,000.00
- Watch the film BBOY for LIFE w/ the central characters and engage in a panel discussion with the cast after the screening
- Enjoy a live music performance from Louisville rap artist Jalin Roze
- Enjoy family activities such as free dance lessons for kids
- Eat from some yummy food trucks
The More Dance – Less Hate tour kickoff is June 21st from 3pm – 11pm (free) at the Tim Faulkner Gallery (1512 Portland Ave, Louisville, KY 40203).
The first 100 people who arrive at 3pm get a free BBOY for LIFE soundtrack. And Nadus will be filming that day, so you stand a good chance of being in the promo video for their tour. I hope that all Sojourners and our neighbors in Louisville will consider attending. You won’t regret it!
