Strictly Ballroom at Christie Pits Film Festival!
For night two of CPFF's Eyes on the Prize series, there are few better examples of the dance competition sub-genre than Baz Luhrmann's Australian cult classic STRICTLY BALLROOM! Traditional ballroom dancing and maverick moves collide when Scott and Fran pair up to compete in the Australian Pan Pacific Championships, challenging norms along the way. Short films DUELO DE DUENDES and LOST IN MOTION II follow suit for this dance and stage performance-themed evening.
