Whoa, I’ve heard of French B-boys, Korean B-boys–but Iranian? Awesome.

For those of you who don’t know what a B[eat]-boy or B-girl it’s a person who immerses themself into hip hop and more specifically breakdancing.

The movie is called Warring Factions. Check out the official trailer:

“As forces in American government and media have fueled the perception of an unavoidable war with Iran, Warring Factions is a call to (dis)arms. An American-born Iranian breakdancer finds cultural awakening by exploring his multi-ethnic roots. Faced with dual nationality in two conflicting countries, he travels to Iran to examine the political issues first-hand while exploring his cultural identity with a group of Iranian b-boys. By combining documentary and studio reenactments, Warring Factions looks at the blurring of world borders, and the looming threat of another war in the Middle East.”
