LA FOLÍA, dir. Adam Grannick, USA (NARRATIVE)
The narrative that links La Folía’s multiple stories is that of a young ballet dancer who refuses to relinquish her passion for dance just because she's told her body is the wrong shape. The twenty-four stories embody the joy, absurdity, sorrow, fury, and ecstasy she must confront within herself.
