Congratulations to Writer/Director Dan Clifton! His short film PATIENT 39 has been selected for the Arizona International Film Festival, which will be its US Premiere, and has just picked up an award for Best Original Score at the Durham Film Festival.
Set in Iran, this powerful and unbelievable true story, DESERT DANCER, follows the brave ambition of Afshin Ghaffarian. During the volatile climate of the 2009 presidential election, where many cultural freedoms were threatened, Afshin and some friends (including Elaheh played by Freida Pinto) risk their lives and form an underground dance company. Through banned online videos, they learn from timeless legends who cross all cultural divides, such as Michael Jackson, Gene Kelly and Rudolf Nureyev. Afshin and Elaheh also learn much from each other, most importantly how to embrace their passion for dance and for one another. Directed by Richard Raymond and Produced by Pippa Cross. Line Producer - Laura Julian, 1st Assistant Director – Olly Robinson, Script Supervisor – Liz West.
