Nat Geo Screening of 'Bouncing Cats' in D.C.

Bouncing Cats tells the inspiring story of one man’s attempt to create a better life for the children of Uganda using the unlikely tools of hip-hop and breakdance, filmed by Nabil Elderkin. With narration by Common and interviews with K’Naan and will.i.am, Bouncing Cats follows Abramz and Crazy Legs, one of the founding members of the Rock Steady Crew, on a journey for social change. Screenings will take place at several locations around the U.S. in early November.  The screening on November 9th at National Geographic in Washington, D.C. will be followed by Q&A with filmmaker Nabil Elderkin, Abramz, and Crazy Legs—and an after party.  For more info and tickets click here.
