Martha & Niki


In 2010, two young Afro-Swedish women took on the macho world of competitive hip-hop dance and won, becoming the first-ever female hip-hop dance duo to beat all of their opponents – men included – at the most world’s most important street-dance competition, Paris’ Juste Debout.
Niki Tsappos, born in Ethiopia and adopted by Swedish parents, and Martha Nabwire, a more recent immigrant from Uganda, are best friends whose skills and teamwork knock audiences and competitors—especially men—for a loop. (“Guys always want to be in charge,” they note.) Boasting some amazing dance-battle footage and moving from Stockholm to Paris, Cuba to South Africa, this high-energy documentary follows these two vibrant young women as they travel, dance, and grow both closer together and farther apart. (Dir. by Tora Mårtens, 2016, Sweden, in Swedish with English subtitles, 93 mins., Not Rated)
