Looking at the Stars


Looking at the Stars tells the story of inspiring young women chasing their dream: in a world built on sight and sound, they are part of the only ballet school for blind, located in São Paulo, Brazil. This documentary focuses on Geyza, one of the instructors and the star of the academy. She lost her sight at the age of nine, and learning ballet changed her life forever. We follow her life and struggles in a city that wasn't built for the blind. It is a film about the beauty of dance and, above all, about the beauty of perseverance.
