LIFT Film Review 2022 Tribeca Film Festival

LIFT, shot over a period of 10 years, is a riveting 87 minutes because of Director David Petersen’s consummate cinematic story telling about The New York Theatre Ballet’s LIFT scholarship program for selected children to develop untapped skills as classical dancers and pursue their dreams. The kids and their families are in constant peril because of the homelessness plaguing them in the hellholes of the worse Bronx and South Bronx neighborhoods. – By Gregg W. Morris
