Brian O’Shea’s Odd Lot International will commence worldwide sales in Cannes this week on the break-dancing underdog story B-Girl.
Emily Dell makes her feature directorial debut based on her award winning short film of the same name and her sister and partner Elizabeth Dell produced.
B-Girl spotlights the world’s top break-dancers and tells of a brilliant young female dancer from New York forced to find her inner strength though the modern dance form.
The film stars the renowned break-dance champion Jules ‘Lady Jules’ Urich alongside Wesley Jonathan, Drew Sidora, Missy Yager, Aimee Garcia, Jenny Gago and Richard Yniquez.
Urich recently starred on the hit NBC show America’s Best Dance Crew with her group the Beat Freaks and has performed alongside such artists as Madonna, Jennifer Lopez, Christina Aquilera and Missy Elliot.
B-Girl showcases the talents of Ivan ‘Flipz’ Velez from Stomp The Yard and Honey, who also choreographed the film, as well as Oren ‘Flea Rock’ Michaeli, Jonathan ‘Legacy’ Perez, Keith ‘Remedy’ Stallworth, Richard ‘Steelo’ Vazquez and Rynan ‘Rainen’ Paguio.
Bell was awarded the 2006 Writer’s Arc Fellowship for screenwriting. Her sister Elizabeth has produced numerous award-winning short films.
Odd Lot International’s Cannes slate includes the drama Rabbit Hole starring Nicole Kidman and Aaron Eckhart to be directed by John Cameron Mitchell, and the adventure fantasy The Great Ghost Rescue based on the children’s book by Eva Ibboston.
