SFDFF On The Road
Raising Voices 2022 (RV22)
Delve into moving stories through a provocative collection of activism-based films featuring dance, storytelling, poetry and music
SFDFF’s 4th annual Raising Voices shorts program creates a platform for the work of under-represented artists and amplifies their powerful messages of activism. Delve into moving stories of immigration, colonialism, and the search for cultural identity as makers from diverse backgrounds champion their causes through a provocative collision of dance, storytelling, poetry and music. Enjoy films like Neon Phantom (Brazil, 2021), where Brazilian delivery drivers take center stage as they fantasize about new lives in an exuberant Broadway musical style. Or Ghost Labor: A Dance Film (USA, 2022), by Bay Area filmmaker/choreographer collaborators John Jota Leaños and Vanessa Sanchez, which highlights the contributions of Mexican farmworkers through tap dance, Mexican Zapateado, Son Jarocho, Afro Caribbean movement, and music.
