MOVING STORIES

USA 2018, 85 min.

Directed by Rob Fruchtman

Six diverse dancers from the acclaimed Battery Dance travel the world, working with young people who’ve experienced war, poverty, sexual violence, extreme prejudice and severe trauma as refugees, teaching them the tools of choreography, so that they can tell their stories through dance.

MOVING STORIES, from Sundance award-winning director Rob Fruchtman with acclaimed filmmakers Mikael Södersten, Cornelia Ravenal and Wendy Sax, follows six diverse dancers from New York’s Battery Dance company to India, Romania, Korea, and Iraq where they work with at-risk youth. With just one week to teach the tools of choreography and collaboration in preparation for performance, the film captures the struggle, frustration, determination, and transformation of students and teachers alike.

Six diverse dancers from the acclaimed Battery Dance company travel the world, working with young people who’ve experienced war, poverty, sexual violence, extreme prejudice and severe trauma as refugees. The goal: to teach them the tools of choreography so that they can tell their stories through dance. As the dancer-teachers struggle to break through, their students respond in extraordinary ways – and as they prepare to perform in public in only a week, both students and teachers are transformed, unlocking feelings and stories in wellsprings of creativity.
