Is it possible to make a difference in the life of someone on the other side of the world?
100-degree heat. 2-man crew. 4-day shoot. 1-man cast.
Shot on location in a remote village in India, The Dancer shows life through the eyes of an 11-year-old orphan boy, Satish Kumar, a non-actor portraying himself and giving us unrestricted access into his world.
This true story is based entirely on an interview with Satish, who speaks only Telugu, and direction was given through a translator. With only 2 days of planning and 4 days of shooting – and despite the communication barrier – a connection was made during production that transcends language and inspired everyone involved in this whirlwind project.
