Sunday Screening – Only When I Dance

Screening Sunday 14th February, 2010

Only When I Dance follows two young teenagers, Isabela and Irlan, as they strive to realise an extraordinary dream.

One girl, one boy; both black and poor, and living in one of the most violent favelas on the outskirts of Rio.

Irlan and Isabela both want to dance ballet and their ambition is to leave Brazil to join one of the great companies in the North.  

For them, dance is the way out, an escape, and on stage, an ecstasy, that is rarely found in their day to day lives.

The question is, can they make it? Only When I Dance follows these two gifted teenagers during the year that will make or break all their future dreams.

Directed by Beadie Finzi
