Finishing Funds for my film: I, DANCE.

Hello folks:

I, DANCE. the documentary is in its final stages. We started filming in April 2011 and finished filming in January 2012. Shot on HD in three locations - Karachi, Lahore and New Delhi - it traces the journey of classical dance in Pakistan through the travels, experiences and struggles of one dancer, Sheema Kermani. Through the film we also meet her contemporaries - the wonderful Kathak dancer, Nahid Siddiqui, for instance - as well as a younger breed of contemporary dancers asserting their voices - and movements - amidst increasing restrictions. As a dancer and an activist, Sheema's story also charts out the political journey of this struggling young state.

We are looking to wrap up the film over the next several weeks. We have received initial funding from the India Foundation for the Arts, from the Goethe Institut Karachi and the Goethe Institute New Delhi. However, given the travel and personnel costs we're still falling a little short.Your funds will help us cover the final editing, sound mix, sound design and composition, as well as titling.
