 After much anticipation, the screenings were upon us.. the ladies flew in from their far corners of the US.. Atlanta, San Jose and Chicago! Parties  and dinners were arranged and cameras were rolling. Despite the snow upon snow the Walter ReadeTheater was full of Hip-hop lovers waiting to see a film about women..”..finally” as some would say later. Those in Full Circle who showed up to help in previous fund raisers attended and helped with merchandise table or by inviting many to attend. Our screening  shared a  time slot with a short film of a duet of contemporary dance BOX and EBONY GODDESS a short documentary about an Ile Aiye pageant in Brazil which uplifts women of African descent.  

A graffiti canvas was gifted to the film directors Kwikstep and Rokafella as well as an embroidered baseball cap and sweatshirt for Lady Champ from Zulu King Slone-WOTS Crew.

Members of the community such as Buddha Stretch- Elite Force, Violet Galagraza-Kr3T’s, Robin Dunn-home for Dance/Ladies GEt Down, Jennifer ARmas, Martha Cooper Alice Mizrachi-Graf writer, Fatima Kafele LIU, Ru and Hakai- Kings of NY, Uko, Shea, Mona Lisa, MAddie, Sara Rosen, and many more.

We were touched with feedback in the audience of their newly found love of  Hip-hop and also to push us to keep fundraising. We still have a few hurdles to clear such as financial support to do a complete sound engineering  of film as well as legal sevices to help get licensing aspects out the way.

We are grateful to Beni Matias, Dierdre Towers and Roberta Uno who have been truly visionary in their confidence in Full Circle Prod to continue forward on the mission to provide platforms for future independent artists to look to or stand on.

If you wish to make a donation please reach out to us by clickin on the contact link and leaving us your request for information on how to offer your support in the form of a check or in kind services etc.

About

“All The Ladies Say” is a film that highlights the lives of six iconic female street dancers from San Jose, Atlanta, Miami and Chicago, who have carved a niche in the physically challenging, male dominated breakdance world. Discussions about motherhood, sexual tension, femininity versus masculinity and the rap industry/mainstream images are a few of the themes explored by the documentary’s main characters. International dancers not only make appearances but also add their two cents about life as a B Girl in the Hip-hop world.
