"I hope people get a real inside look at the process of becoming a ballerina and then the process of letting go of that. I think people can relate to the film in their own lives that have nothing to do with dance. I think people can see themselves in my story. The dance is where it took place but it’s a real human story and I hope people can relate."
ALSO SCREENING: Short film by Amy Seiwart, starring Pascal Molat
Pascal Molat, and Lorena Feijoo will be present for a live conversation following the films.
