This film bursts with joy. The glory of dancing in the streets and bars of New Orleans would be compelling enough watching, but Buckjumping skillfully shows the power of dance as resilience and resistance in Black lives. Makes you want to get moving, in all the ways.
Buckjumping is a cinematic journey through the soul of New Orleans. The film explores different communities as they express themselves through movement, painting a dynamic portrait of a city's spirituality, defiance and resourcefulness.
