Mud Water

Directed by My-Linh Le

Cast: Arthur V. Gardner, Hector Ascencio aka Intricate, Jr aka Dopey Fresh, Michael Chicago aka No Name, Philip Mays aka Yung Phil

Set in Oakland where turfing started, MUD WATER is just as much a blend of styles in dance as it is in film. A melding of dance, documentary, and narrative, two interconnecting stories find their way towards each other in this lyrical film. A man looks for his shadow after being severed from it. And meanwhile, turfers seek to win a dance battle.

Director My-Linh Le, Producer and Director of Photography Elijah Guess, and Actors Arthur V. Gardner (aka Dopey Fresh) and Michael Chicago (aka No Name) are expected to attend.
