Product Description

Capturing the raw power and defiant creativity of a home-grown hip-hop movement, the award-winning documentary INSIDE THE CIRCLE follows talented Texas b-boys Josh and Omar, former best friends turned rivals. As Josh tangles repeatedly with the law, Omar rises to international renown over the objections of his traditional Mexican-American father. Both b-boys struggle to keep dance at the center of their lives, and the B-Boy City competitive events thrown by visionary street dancer Romeo Navarro serve as emotional milestones in their journey to adulthood. As Romeo aptly says, if you can hold yourself down in a battle, you can hold yourself down in life. (Audience Awards: SXSW 2007, San Diego Film Festival 2007, New Orleans International Human Rights Film Festival 2008)

Review

Amazingly good... FIND THIS MOVIE AND WATCH IT! --Ain't It Cool News

An absorbing documentary about two Texas b-boys that not only features the most sizzling breakdancing to be seen on the big or small screen, but also does the only lucid job I've yet encountered of explaining the aesthetic of this street art without diluting its power. --Michael Sragow, Baltimore Sun

Inside the Circle is as much about b-boys and breaking as it is about the lives of two young men coping with the difficulties of growing up. This is where the film gets its heart and soul, lending an undeniable humanity to the documented history of b-boys. Garriott does a great job of balancing the dance floor action with the human drama, creating a documentary that is both exciting and endearing. But what she also does is show how an underground art form born in the Bronx has become an instrumental part of the lives of people all over the world, growing into a global community. --David Walker, IndieFilm Journal and DVDtalk

Format: DVD
Marcy Garriott's film, "Inside the Circle' is worth owning for the incredible dancing alone. These dancers are a cross between Cirque de Soleil performers, and Olympic athletes. Add a riveting and compelling story of three young men trying to find their place in the world, and you have a film you'll want to watch more than once.
Garriott, weaves a story that follows Josh, Omar and Romeo. These three search for their identities, long for family, compete against each other, and try to not repeat the mistakes of their parents.
Particularly riveting is Josh. Josh lives at home, gets in trouble, and tries desperately not to end up like his murdered father. Josh's joy ride on a golf cart, a prank that in a better neighborhood would be a funny anecdote over gin and tonics, threatens to destroy his suddenly promising future.
These three boys on the verge of manhood could have very easily found family in a violent gang. Instead they fight their battles, and their demons, inside the dance circle.
Innovative animation provides transitions between scenes, and the soundtrack makes you want to immediately spin on your head. The film also comes with special features that you will want to view over and over again.

The story of how three young men made their dream to dance a reality is told in this documentary. I found it to be inspirational for other Youth, including youth who are involved with juvenile justice system. There are opportunities in the film to discuss certain topics such as personal goals/dreams; values; leadership skils and characteristics; choices and decision making; success and what it looks like; and what it takes to be successful. I recommend the documentary to those interested in dance and to those interested in the personal stories of 3 determined and extremely talented youth.

This is a kinetic, heartfelt film that jumped off the screen and into my heart. I've never seen a documentary film explore b-boy culture in such a raw, elegant & emotionally complex way -- Inside The Circle is truly a standout. You'll want to share it with all your friends!

Great presentation of the b-boy life with fantastic dance scenes! Watched with my 15 year old "b-boy" son who loved the dance moves and honest portrayal of behind the scenes. Good turnaround story of real kids. My son will keep watching for the great and unique moves. No Hollywood hype here! we recommend it highly!
