Looking at the Stars is an intimate glimpse into the lives of the extraordinary ballerinas at the world’s only ballet school for the blind - the Fernanda Bianchini Ballet Association for the Blind. The stories of these dancers go beyond the challenge of learning to dance without a visual reference. Like many of us, these women want to be good professionals, partners, friends. They want to be relevant and self-sufficient. They work fiercely to become the best versions of themselves.
The documentary’s main character, Geysa, danced this year in a Stevie Wonder’s presentation.
The only ballet school for the blind in the world is in Sao Paulo.
