DANCERS by Antonio Da Silva
Go to http://antoniodasilvafilms.com/dancers to watch the full length film.
This is a 10 min film including 20 min of extra footage.
Thirty-five Portuguese dancers undress in front of the camera. They become the object of desire with a sensual provocative performance. Eclectic dance disciplines help this film to explore an exhibitionist view of the male nude.
This is a statement about the current financial situation in Portugal and the lack of fundings to support artistic initiatives. All contributions from this film will be given to the participants of DANCERS film, to encourage and inspire them, for them to give you one more private dance! These artists are not afraid to challenge the general thinking about male nudity and they showcase the potential of creative Portuguese performance arts.
After all, the penis also can dance!
