Ang Sayaw ng Dalawang Kaliwang Paa (Synopsis):
Doing poorly in class, Marlon (Paulo Avelino) plans to impress his literature teacher, Karen (Jean Garcia), who moonlights as a dance teacher and choreographer. He hires his fellow classmate Dennis (Rocco Nacino), who also happens to be Karen’s dance assistant, to give him private lessons without her knowledge. Through their lessons the two young men grow closer, but Dennis begins to have feelings for Marlon that go beyond friendship that Marlon does not reciprocate.
Soon their friendship is strained and Marlon cannot fathom why. When both young men are cast to play leads in Karen’s dance adaptation of the Ilonggo epic Humadapnon, it is through dance that Marlon can finally express what he cannot say in words to Dennis.
Beautiful and moving, Ang Sayaw ng Dalawang Kaliwang Paa (The Dance of Two Left Feet), elegantly features poems from Filipino feminists that are intertwined with the dances highlighted in the film. As he learns how his body should move, Marlon begins to grasp the connection between poetry and dance. He begins to understand how the poems are testaments to Karen’s choice to live the life of an artist.
