Full Frame Documentary Film Festival Outdoor Screenings and Food Truck Roundup, hosted by Full Frame Documentary Film Festival.
STEP follows three students at the Baltimore Leadership School for Young Women over the course of their senior year. The school, founded in 2009, is based on the precept that all of its pupils will go on to attend college. As the inaugural class prepares to graduate, pressures are high for Cori, Blessin, and Tayla, but they are not alone. Counselor Paula Dofat is determined to help them reach higher education, no matter how much effort or tough love is involved. They also find support and a creative outlet through their school step dance team, the “Lethal Ladies.” With the intrepid Coach G pushing them to excellence, the step team becomes a welcome escape, and together, the women are determined to be a competitive threat during the season ahead. Moving between practice, home, and school, the film captures the complex struggles in each of these women’s young lives, underscoring just how hard it is to attain your dreams when other forces stand in the way. Highlighting inspiring connections and vibrant performances, this dynamic film may just rouse you to your feet.
This screening is FREE (no ticket required) and open to the public.
