Bgirls Ntegrity, Mantis and Brieski at the Bronx Museum ATLS event

Thank you to the Bronx Museum and staff for helping us kick off the 10 year Anniversary of the project that would become All The Ladies Say documentary. It was there that we held our first discussion with Martha Cooper, Nika Kramer, MC/Poet Queen Godis, B girls Tara and Bonnie and a room full of people eager to hear about the experience of women in Hip-hop. In 2006, The Ford Foundation awarded Full Circle Productions Inc with funding to visit 6 US cities to continue the discussion and celebrate the release of Martha Cooper’s Book WE B*Girlz.

We were so happy to have Queen Godis, Violeta Galagarza and Peaches at the event since they are featured women in the film and are still very active in the scenes despite the challenges. Co founder of Momma’s Hip-hop Kitchen Lah Tere flew in from Chicago despite Hurricane Joaquin weather threatening to cancel her flight and she blessed us all with her powerful testimony as a poet, activist and MC. Thank you to Grafitti Writers Lady K Fever and Shiro who were in the house reppin their contributions to the very underground element of spray can art! Thank you to Bgirls Mantis and Ntegrity who threw down their best dance moves in an exhibition battle and to all the bgirls who repped. Photograph above by Miguel Teck Artega and Lauren Click. Thank you to DJ KS360/Kwikstep for bringing the Behind The Groove party vibe to the closing hour of the event.

We screened the trailers and are planning to screen the film in NOVEMBER please stay tuned.

In order for us to create a part 2 of ATLS we have launched a GOFUNDME campaign and we hope you can consider making a donation so we can have an event in NYC in 2016 where Lady Champ and Aiko can fly out and offer workshops. Please go to https://www.gofundme.com/AlltheLadiesSayNYC and help us to continue this very relevant project that creates the platform for women in Hip-hop to shine and feel solidarity in the trials and triumphs of Hip-hop art.

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.
