CINE-ONU: "Only When I Dance", Brussels, 22 February

Image from "Only When I Dance" film - a ballet dancer with favela as a backdropThe United Nations in partnership with the Goethe Institute invites you to the screening of ONLY WHEN I DANCE on Tuesday, 22 February 2011, 6:30 p.m.
Beadie Finzi's documentary "Only When I Dance", billed as a Brazilian Billy Elliot, follows two teenagers from rough, working-class Brazilian neighborhoods who aspire to the heights of ballet. "Only When I Dance" is the extraordinary story of a girl and a boy, chasing a seemingly impossible dream. Dance is their passion, and their dream is to dance their way out of the favelas of Rio.

The film documents their journey through the pressures and prejudices of the professional world of dance.
The film will be followed by a Q & A session with Beadie Finzi (Director "Only When I Dance") and Jan Jarab (Regional Representative of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Brussels) Janos Tisovszky, UNRIC Deputy Director, will moderate the discussion.

There is no entrance fee, but as places are limited, we kindly ask you to register in advance by sending an e-mail with the subject  “CINE-ONU” to: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

Launch of the ILO Global Report on Wage, Brussels, 15 December

ILO Global Wage Report cover

What? This flagship report provides analysis of wage trends during the crisis using the latest world, regional and country-level estimates. While the previous Global Wage Report 2008/09 reviewed wages during the generally favorable economic period between 1995 and 2007, the current edition looks at wages during 2008-09 – a period characterized by the deepest economic downturn since the 1930s.
