Synopsis:
In this inspirational documentary we meet-up with a successful Canadian choreographer who spends months of every year working with the street kids of Rwanda, orphans of one of the bloodiest episodes of ethnic cleansing since World War II. “Dance Up From the Street” is the intimate, moving story of an alternative to life on the streets in a country still struggling to heal the wounds of genocide. Eric Mgwaneza is a 15 year old who has hopes for a brighter future and is inspired by Rebecca during one of her visits to Rwanda. In this compelling story we learn that dance moves truly transcend barriers of language, race and age and that dance might just be a way for him to realise his dreams. The young Rwandans learn not only contemporary dance, but also to connect with their own country’s dance tradition. Dance becomes a language of community discourse and a tool for personal liberation.
