“Only When I Dance”, by Beadie Finzi
Screened on 22 February 2011
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 was followed by a Q & A session with Beadie Finzi (Director “Only When I Dance”).
