Jamaican Dancehall Queen doc ‘Bruk Out!’ showing around the U.S. (watch the trailer)
The world of underground Jamaican dancehall, and specifically the culture of Dancehall Queens, is vibrantly explored in new documentary Bruk Out! Here's the synopsis:
BRUK OUT! follows six outspoken and unique female dancers from around the globe as they overcome adversity to compete in the world's biggest Dancehall Queen competition. Their obsession with the vibrant underbelly of Jamaican dance leads the women to conquer body issues, poverty, domestic abuse and the struggles of being a single mother, all while keeping their eyes on winning the biggest prize in Dancehall.
We've got the premiere of a brand new trailer for the film and you can watch that below.
