We are proud for our film to be showcased as part of DFA Global. This edition celebrates women from different countries and traditions strengthening themselves and their communities through the practice of dance while up against significant odds. These three documentaries, directed by women, lead the audience into a wide world of empathy, wonder, and inspiration.
