"Planet B-boy" is a documentary which won rave reviews at major film festivals, including the International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam.
Director Benson Lee was the man who captured the passion of b-boy dancers on film.
Talented b-boys from all over the world gather in Germany every year.
The documentary introduces 19 b-boy crews taking part in this international tournament.
Each crew's unique and original dance moves are unveiled on-screen.

[Interview : Benson Lee Director of Planet B-boy ] "Dance is not just a bunch of moves that has no reason, you know. Dance is actually the most deepest personal expression, as a group or as an individual. And to show where they're from, and the culture that they're from, and to understand their personal issues, I think is a wonderful way to see dance and understand it on a much deeper level".

Director Benson Lee closely observed the b-boy lifestyle for five months and communicated these dancers' dreams and artistic values to audiences worldwide.
In the beginning, many of these b-boys faced opposition from their parents.
But they refused to give up.
Their parents gradually came to accept and embrace their enthusiasm.
There's no such thing as language and cultural barriers when it comes to dance.
