"Bouncing Cats" - empowering Uganda's youth with breakdancing

The award winning documentary "Bouncing Cats" tells the inspiring story of Ugandan b-boy and A.I.D.S. orphan Abraham "Abramz" Tekya who attempts to create a better life for the children of Uganda using the unlikely tool of hip-hop with a focus on b-boy culture and breakdance. To make his dream come true Abramz founded the Breakdance Project Uganda (B.P.U.) and established free workshops to empower, rehabilitate, and heal the community by teaching youth about b-boy culture.

It seems that "Bouncing Cats" is currently not available on DVD, but you can check their website or their facebook page for future screenings.
