SANTO DOMINGO WALTZ


Tatiana Fernández Geara | 2021 | Dominican Republic | 77′ | Documentary

Synopsis

Three teen ballet students — Raymundo, Angel and Victor — are the only boys in a class of twenty. In a country where dance is mostly considered an activity for women, they are determined to follow their dreams and challenge traditional gender roles. Like a waltz, music played in triple time, the three boys move through Santo Domingo while confronting, yet sometimes abiding by, the Dominican machismo culture.
