All children have the right to a home, but for the young people in some of these narrative and documentary films, political and religious issues threaten their futures. The films are made by filmmakers in response to worldwide migration issues, and also include a documentary from a dream city, where origins and cultural differences do not matter to a tight-knit group of boys.

Dance for Life (Shorts Program)

Saturday, January 26 – 5:00pm
Sunday, January 27 – 7:00pm
Ages 8+

Enjoy these short films that celebrate the magic of movement around the world! See how birds swarm in a beautiful symphony in the sky, marvel at a dancing Yeti that storms Paris, and join a blind man as he grooves to the deep vibrations of music. The program also spotlights two young people who turn the streets and playgrounds of Los Angeles into their dance floor, and gives an in-depth peek into the lives of two, pre-teen dancers who are rising stars in the school of the Royal Danish Ballet.
