We all are winners, you just have to finish the race not “fast” but “smart”… I had the pleasure of enjoying the private invite only breakfast yesterday hosted by 135 agency; in the morning at the London NYC hotel in Midtown Manhattan for the premiere of the Sundance Film Festival sensation “Step“ the movie. The coming of age story as the “film industry” likes to label it, the girls featured in the film; hail from the city of Downtown Baltimore, Maryland and their story of triumph is chronologically told to us from their own views. The movie debuts in theaters August 4th 2017.
The movie is set in a school community, a charter school which had a losing step team until this particular year they gained a new captain who just happen to be their “savior” in this documentary.
The movie’s run time is 83 min.
STEP documents the senior year of a girls’ high-school step dance team against the background of inner-city Baltimore. As each one tries to become the first in their families to attend college, the girls strive to make their dancing a success against the backdrop of social unrest in the troubled city.
