The Tribeca Film Festival's Drive-In Series will be screening Planet B-Boy, a feature-length documentary on breakdancing. Planet B-Boy depicts the global resurgence of breakdancing through the life of a dancer in Las Vegas looking for his big break, a Korean son who seeks his fatherâ€™s approval and a twelve-year-old boy in France confronting his familyâ€™s racism. From the outskirts of Paris to the suburbs of Seoul, the film serves as a reminder of hip-hop's influence on different and diverse cultures. This year the outdoor screenings return to the World Financial Plaza in Lower Manhattan and are free. Gates open at 6:30 pm and Planet B Boy will begin at 8:30 pm on Saturday, 28 April 2007. View the trailer here.
