Martha & Niki
directed by Tora Mkandawire Mårtens

In 2010 African-born dancers Martha Nabwire and Niki Tsappos became the first women to win France’s Juste Debout, the biggest international street dance competition. This documentary follows the hip-hop world champions as they take part in competitions where they are often the only women, and which they don’t always win. The two struggle with the differences in their backgrounds and personalities as well as with questions of heritage and culture. Available to rent at
