“Bouncing Cats” is the inspiring story of one man’s attempt to create a better life for the children of Uganda using the unlikely tool of hip-hop with a focus on b-boy culture and breakdance. In 2006, Abraham “Abramz” Tekya, a Ugandan b-boy and A.I.D.S. orphan created Breakdance Project Uganda (B.P.U.) with the goal of establishing a free workshop that would empower, rehabilitate and heal the community by teaching youth about b-boy culture. Abramz invited Crazy Legs, one of the founding members of the Rock Steady Crew, to visit Uganda and teach these classes. From the southern slums of Uganda to the war-torn North, Crazy Legs encountered a passion for hip-hop and desire to learn amongst the most squalid conditions. “Bouncing Cats” follows Abramz, Crazy Legs, and Breakdance Project Uganda on a journey to use hip-hop culture for positive social change. The film features narration by Common and interviews with Mos Def, Will.I.Am, and K’Naan.
