.This year the jury has gathered and made the selection out of the nearly 200 recent dancefilms submitted. The jury is composed of the artistic directors Stefanie Bodien and Wolfgang Kolb and two external members : Rudi Maerten and Rolf Quaghebeur.
14:00 Session 1: DOCU: Looking at the Stars
A film by Alexandre Peralta.
Looking at the Stars is an intimate glimpse into the lives of the extraordinary ballerinas at the world’s only ballet school for the blind—the Fernanda Bianchini Ballet Association for the Blind.
The stories of these dancers go beyond the challenge of learning to dance without a visual reference. Like many of us, these women want to be good professionals, partners, friends. They want to be relevant and self-sufficient. They work fiercely to become the best versions of themselves.
