WHY I DANCE - Is a dance documentary presented by Sånafest.
In 2018, French choreographer Louis Clément da Costa worked with a group of young dancers in Kigali, Rwanda. The theme they explored was “freedom”.
With da Costa’s choreography acting as the continuous thread throughout the film, we see the dancers performing in various locations around Kigali. We are given a glimpse into everyday life in Rwanda, and we witness the young dancers’ passion and commitment to dance.

EXPLORING THE RISE OF
AFRO DANCES IN AMERICA
During a very challenging time, this film explores the roots of African American heritage through African and Caribbean social dances. Amid the COVID-19 global pandemic, it was important for the director, Angel Kaba to create a space to uplift the spirits of the NYC dance community and inspire the world by highlighting Afro Dances on film.
Moving Barcelona is a magical realist dance story about the Catalonian capital, an autonomous region in the Spanish State contending with an identity crisis. A city with everything going for it is still haunted by the ghosts of its past and despite much progress, it finds itself unearthing old wounds. Narrated by celebrated actor, Pep Munné, who appeals for calm, there is a sense of reassurance that all is okay. The movement of the city however tells a different story, and he is resigned to the fact that things inevitably, are the way they are. Barcelonians, in pursuit of happiness, find themselves on a treadmill to nowhere in a tale of modern day life. Moving Barcelona is the eighth film in an award-winning collection of works by the London-based film-maker, Jevan Chowdhury to capture the world as a stage. Life on the street in London, Paris, Brussels, Dallas, Prague, Yerevan and Athens have all been recorded in this growing canon.
THE 12th NIGHT
There is no doubt that 2020 has become an important part of history.
The Breaking Art Festival(BAF) is an important contemporary dance festival in southern China.
Last year, the BAF takes death as the theme and discusses the topics of life and art.
This film not only records the recording of BAF, but also extends the dialogue further.
I HAD A BALL
Originally conceived for stage, this piece offered the perfect crossover for our creative team. It's the merging of multiple loves that acknowledge the 1964 musical's lyrics and how the athleticism of dance and sport can be mutually appreciated.
