LIFF Presents: Martha & Niki
1 Jun 2021 - 31 Jul 2021
As part of our LIFF Selects Programme
Meet Martha and Niki, young street dancers armed with endless energy and huge amounts of talent. In 2010 they won the biggest international street dance competition, making history as the first women to become World Champions in Hip Hop. This intimate documentary follows their journey to competitions across the world and highlights the growing pressure they face. Both born in Africa but now living in Sweden, the pair grapple with various life questions, and try to figure out their roots and culture along the way. Martha and Niki is a deeply moving account of the fragility of friendship and the power of dance.
