Director's statement:

When I moved to Greece in the late 90s, I found some people at the state TV there (ERT) who were interested in a documentary about Greeks of America. I had a lot of fun filming my cousin's legendary dance troupe in New Jersey, and then merging the hip hop music they were surrounded by with the Greek traditional music of their dances.
