Chroniclers of the urban dance scene, YAK FILMS are the focus of tonight's Dance on Camera screening. Co-founded by Yoram Savion and Kash Gaines, the duo began their multimedia career documenting the legendary TURF FEINZ crew in Oakland, CA. They have since spawned a national dance movement known as Turfing, and made a number of eye-popping videos including one for Adidas starring Les Twins. For this evening's program, the filmmaker's present unseen footage shot at international dance events in New York, Russia, Germany, Dresden, Korea and Japan. Be sure to stick around after for a Q&A.
