Only When I Dance (Vida Ballet) (2009, 78 min), by Beadie Finzi – tells the inspirational story of two young kids who try to dance their way out of the favelas of Rio. (Portuguese with English subtitles).
This feel-good documentary follows Irlan and Isabela, two teenagers from the violent favelas of Rio de Janeiro, as they pursue their dreams of becoming professional ballet dancers. This inspiring story takes us from Rio de Janeiro, to exhilarating ballet competitions in New York and Switzerland. It's a film about their determination to dance, and the price one must pay for talent, ambition and success.
Filmmaker and producer, Beadie Finzi will join our post-film discussion, live from London, England, UK, via Skype video.
