MANO The Film: Interesting New Short Film About Salsa Dancing

Friday, February 19, 2010

I saw this online the other day and thought it was interesting.  The makers of this film, “MANO The Film”, released a short 24 minute film all about salsa dancing.  What is unique about their approach is that they infused the film with drama as they showcase the dancing we all love.  Below is a short synopsis from our friends over at Salsa Dynasty:

“Written, produced and directed by Nardolillo, “MANO” tells the story of Victor and Machito; best friends growing up and heavily involved in the underground salsa scene. Separated as teenagers after the death of Victor’s father, Victor leaves New York all together; however the passion for dance and music never leaves him. After returning to the block he grew up on years later, he seeks out his childhood buddy Machito, whom he discovers has followed his father’s fatal footsteps. Staring Giancarlo Esposito (Do the Right Thing, Carlitos Way; Rise to Power, Usual Suspects, Feel the Noise), Laz Alonso (Jarhead, Stomp the Yard, Avatar) , Lee Thompson Young (Friday Night Lights, Akeelah and the Bee , The Hills Have Eyes 2), Yesenia Adame (Dancing with the Stars, National Bingo Night) and introducing Anthony Nardolillo. The short film is the predecessor to the feature length film which is currently in development and being produced by Michael Watkins – Executive producer of X-Files and Prison Break.”
