Raised by Krump

Raised by Krump

"Raised by Krump" is a 22-minute documentary film that explores the Compton/South Central, Los Angeles-born dance movement called “Krumping”, and the lives of some of the area’s most influential and prolific dancers.
"Raised by Krump" blends the art of movement, music, and personal interviews together to tell the story of finding solace within an underground movement and the community that it creates. The film, directed by Swedish filmmaker Maceo Frost, focuses on how Krumping has helped the people of these neighborhoods deal with the emotional issues that come with growing up in one of L.A.’s toughest neighborhoods — a place where showing emotion is often considered a sign of weakness.
