Desert Dancer

2015 Biography

In Iran during the volatile time of the 2009 presidential election, Afshin Ghaffarian (Ritchie), a dancer at heart, gathers with friends to form an underground dance company. With dancing currently forbidden by the government, to do so is to risk one’s life -- but Afshin and his friends, including the beautiful and talented Elaheh (Pinto), refuse to let their passions go unrecognized. By hacking into YouTube, the group learns from such masters of movement as Michael Jackson, Gene Kelly and Pina Bausch. Deep in the desert, the company prepares to perform, out of reach of the brutal military police.
