WWe start this dance as Serena draws the portrait of Enzo. In a cozy and intimate atmosphere, he tells us his story. This life is extraordinary. Because it is a life of a Female-To-Man (FTM) transgender. We then sway with Jay, and glimpse the extraordinary and complex life of Jay Kyle Peterson, an abstract artist with an abstract past. Switching to Off The Grid we discover that with a university degree, a corporate job, and a stable marriage, Fadi Hachicho, seemed like someone who “got it all.” However, as he celebrated his 30th birthday, he became unable to silence the sound in his head, incessantly telling him there must be more to life than just this. We keep the groove flowing with Tigerstyle. A film that explores how brothers Raj and Pops use music to build a connection between their traditional Indian heritage and the Western society they call home. In Unspoken, we slide into a dance about spoken word poet Farah Chamma. In Wolf Call, our soulful journey lead us to Southern Colorado where a wild wolf sanctuary asks us to rethink our relationship between wild and captive animals. While in Little Fiel we step into the reminder guns are not killers. They are pieces of metal that can be reassembled into anything, including a little boy, a bird or a rose. Just as they make them, we can unmake them, one by one. We end the song pulsing to From Haarlem to Harlem and discover that photographic artist Alanna Airitam draws inspiration from the Dutch Renaissance to create social commentary about oppression in America.
