Project Grant

Monkey Dance

Pre-production for "Monkey Dance", a one hour documentary video following three Cambodian-American teenagers in the Angkor Dance Troupe of Lowell, Massachusetts. All three are leaders in their community who find positive solutions to challenges they face with poverty, gang violence, and ethnic identity. Their life stories will serve as a lens through which to examine issues of cultural identity, ethnic relations, and family bonds-and the role that traditional arts play in these arenas.
