The Screen Guide

Under the brutal regime of Pol Pot over 90 percent of Cambodia's artists were killed, including most of the classical dancers of the Royal Court Ballet. Only one in ten survived. This is the story of the tenth dancer. THE TENTH DANCER is an intimate portrait of the relationship between a teacher and her pupil set against the backdrop of war-torn Cambodia. The film weaves betwen the past and the present, memory and dream, to reveal a story of human dignity and survival.
