This captivating documentary tells the remarkable 'Billy Elliot'-like story of South African dancer Siphe November, who was discovered as a young boy in the township of Zolani and rose to become one of a handful of Africans to lead a Western ballet company. Featuring breathtaking sequences that showcase Siphe’s innate physical talent and magnetism, and revealing interviews with his family and teachers, BEYOND MOVING sensitively captures the sacrifices one makes for art, the life we leave behind, and the power of dance to bridge cultures. Recommended for ages 10 and up.
