To Dance Like A Man
Collier’s documentary follows Cuban identical triplets Angel, César and Marcos, the top young students at Cuba’s renowned National Ballet School as they are poised to begin their dancing careers. Ballet star José Carreño tells the 11-year-olds to pursue their dream, just as he did when he was growing up in Havana and teachers comment that all three show equal emerging talent. The film explores a child’s eye view on determination and hunger for professional success in context of Cuba’s surprising impact on formation of male dancers.
Director Sylvie Collier, and the triplets
, Angel, César and Marcos will attend the screening.
