Only When I Dance

“Only When I Dance”, by Beadie Finzi

Screened on 22 February 2011

Runtime: 78′

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 was followed by a Q & A session with Beadie Finzi (Director “Only When I Dance”).
