Strange Fruit: Film Examines Guatemala's Breakdancing Culture; Orange is the New Juicy

This week we meet Coury Deeb, founder and director of Nadus Films. The Louisville filmmaker's latest film, Bboy for Life, takes us into Guatemala's breakdancing subculture, and shows how gang violence affects the lives of the dancers - many of whom are pacifists, themselves.The film will be screened in Louisville on September 11, and after seeing the trailer (below), the Strange Fruit team can't wait to see the whole thing.In this week's Juicy Fruit segment we finally talk about Orange Is the New Black!And Jaison gives us an update on Marco McMillan's murder (McMillan was a black gay man running for mayor in Mississippi, and a friend of Jai's).

Laura is LPM's Director of Podcasts & Special Projects. Email Laura at lellis@lpm.org.
