    Polish short documentary film „Dancing for you” directed by Katarzyna Lesisz will be screened during the teacher’s seminar entitled “Documentary films as an educational tool”, opening the KinderDocs documentary film festival on 5th and 6th of September in Athens.

    The film more than about dancing tells about contemporary orphans – children left behind in the care of grandmothers and grandfathers by their parents, who have to work elsewhere, in other cities or even abroad. 

    Twelve-year-old Wiktor is a pupil at a renowned ballet school. He’s preparing for an event of enormous importance in his school life; the ‘promo show’, which decides whether or not he’ll be ‘promoted’ and move up to the next grade. All the teachers and all the pupil’s parents take part in the preparation. His grandmother is his companion as he practices for the performance, but his dream is that his father, who lives abroad, will come to the show.
