Joseph East is a freelance videographer and editor based in Denver, Colorado. His first full-length documentary, I WILL DANCE recently broadcast on PBS in Colorado.
Film Synopsis: In a city where young peoples’ fate seems predetermined by their circumstances, I Will Dance is a defiant proclamation not to be another statistic, teenage parent, or gang member. The film follows RATCo Selma’s journey to New York City. There, they share their stories through an original show written and choreographed by the participants themselves. Around every corner and with every skyscraper, monument, and museum, there is a discovery. But their greatest discovery is their own voice.
