STEPS  

fiction 2016

Director: Nicola Stephanie Sangs

Country of Origin/Filming: Hungary

 

Karcsi is disabled, forced into a wheelchair. His world revolves around performance, around music and friends. In his every day life, he often has to rely on people’s help, but when he dances he develops an energy and an ability which let his disability disappear, leaving us with an extraordinary feeling of fascination. ‘Steps’ is a choreography of life; a dance between dependence and independence, of rising beyond

yourself.
