Set in a topsy-turvy world where football is only for girls and ballet is the manliest pursuit there is, Ballerino follows one working class boy as he defies society and his father’s wishes for him to be a ballerina in favour of his repressed fascination with his sister's sport; football.
In Summer 2018 ‘Ballerino’ was awarded a “Short of the Year'‘ prize by Promofest. As part of this award Promofest will be submitting the film to 50 festivals globally. Keep an eye out for updates.
