THE WORLD IN 30 MINUTES

To be a B-Girl

20' (GER)
Girls who break dance are a rarity so it is with great pleasure that we present Jilou – the B-Girl.

At the age of 13 she attended her first HipHop-Battle. She graduated a while ago and tries to figure out what to study. Jilou takes us to practice and to the battles, a world dominated by men. Usually she’s the only girl, but she doesn’t care about all the bruises which are a part of this sport.

Sure, she dreams of the cliché life of being married with two kids, but dancing is her passion and a part of who she is. She knows that break dancing is often associated with the ghetto and is typically a male dominated field. Nevertheless she has decided to take the plunge. She takes us to dance practices and to battles and shows us what it’s like to be a female in a world dominated by men. Usually she’s the only girl, but she doesn’t care about all the bruises which are a part of this sport as long as she gets to do what she loves.
