Dreams on Fire (N/C 15+) (2021)

  • Music, Drama, Subtitled
  • 2h 3m

Fleeing to Tokyo with the hopes that she can fulfil her dream of becoming a dancer, Yume is met with the harsh reality that success isn’t something that comes quickly or easily. Whilst juggling her job as a hostess in Tokyo’s red-light district, Yume throws herself headfirst into studying the artform and integrating herself into the underground dance community. Starring one of Japan’s most famous dancers, Bambi Naka, in her first lead role, Dreams on Fire is a vibrant and intoxicating look into Japanese dance and subculture communities that echoes films like Coyote Ugly and Step Up.

World Premiere. Thanks to Philippe McKie.
