A prestigious Paris city centre high school gambles that they can change the prospects for struggling students through Hip Hop. “Dancing is drive. You have it or not,” they are told. The training motivates, strengthens and allows the students to surpass themselves. Everyone brings his or her own story and through dance, learns to translate their experiences into physical energy. The intimately immersive camera interweaves explosive movement with moments of reﬂection. There are injuries and disappointments, but also hopes, dreams and inner transformations. Also screening as part of the Festival’s schools programme.
Tickets available online and on the door.
