Castro's Revolution

Archival photo: In the rehearsal studio, two teenage ballerinas, identical twins, wearing black leotards, light-colored tights and toe shoes, smile for the camera posing on bended knees, arms entwined Close-up of a middle-aged woman, hair pulled back in a bun, wearing a t-shirt and demonstrating a dance pose; a young male dancer is in the background imitating the same position Close-up of a middle-aged woman who looks similar to the other woman, her hair cut short, wearing a turtleneck sweater, her hand at her throat; ballet bars are in the background

One embraced the Cuban revolution, the other American democracy. 

Separated by time, place and politics, identical twins Margarita and Ramona de Saá continued to share a passion for dance. MIRROR DANCE explores the story of two women forever linked, struggling to overcome rifts not only between sisters, but also between nations.
