No I Don't Want To Dance
dir Andrea Vinciguerra
Have you ever had the impression that if you play the right song while a person is, for instance, frantically moving their arms trying to get rid of a bee, it may seem like they're dancing instead? “No, I Don’t Want to Dance” it’s a stop motion animated short film which aims to raise awareness of how deadly dangerous dance can be.
words from the filmmaker
These are dark times. The growing amount of political, social and environmental issues fill the agendas of millions of concerned people around the world. You may think that in our modern and thorough times, every potential hazard has been identified. You would be wrong. There is a critical issue that, as yet, nobody has taken into consideration: how dangerous dance can be. We’re living in a world where dance is everywhere and, believe it or not, your kids will one day be asked to dance. You need to take control and avoid it. Blindly following other people’s “movements” may lead to catastrophic consequences. This short film aims to raise awareness of how deadly dangerous dance can be. So hopefully, one day, when someone asks you, you will be able to reply: "No, I don't want to dance!”
why we love this film
This is truly a work of art. The attention to detail, pace, humor, and craftsmanship are extraordinary. The best compliment we can give a film is: we want to watch it again. And again. And again.
