Hip Hop Fusion

Luc Riolon

2000 / 98min / Production : 24 images - France 2 / Broadcasting : France 2

After the discovery in 1999 of the overwhelming energy that reigns in this Hip-hop dance meet, with contemporary choreographers, filmmaker Luc Riolon proposes to return to Suresnes a year later. It’s a new stage in the recognition of hip hop as a dance in the artistic world – a decisive step was taken this year - its the artists who’re going to speak: dancers and choreographers. This documentary is based on the debate arising from the clash between two different cultures. We discover the artistic and human issues that are at stake, thanks to a camera that was completely immersed into this creative abundance, making itself obscure…without any direction, leaving space for real emotions, raw speech and passionate artists.
