Viewed more than 16,000 times in the past six days, this 45-minute documentary is made by the Norway based “Bboy Spaghetti”. It is an entertaining and inspiring account of Break and Hip Hop dance and culture in today’s Iran – A country where every aspect of personal and social life including access to the internet is curbed and controlled by the government; where bloggers – men and women alike – are being arrested and detained on a regular basis for voicing their opinions and where people continue to write, to produce underground music, to live. to dance and to Hip Hop! Watch for yourselves and enjoy the skill, spirit and innovations of this incredibly resistant generation, comprising 70% of population.  (Girls are not present in this video but I have heard from friends in Iran that they do practice it in Girl’s Gyms. Their skill level? Not known really).
