Dancing Across Borders A Young Man’s Journey from Cambodia to the Ballet Stage in America A film by Anne Bass “A delight!” The New York Times “Moving, powerful…” 
Vanity Fair “I was floored and riveted…an ode to possibility, risk, discipline, and passion.” Jerry Saltz, Senior Art Critic, New York Magazine Featuring Sy 
Sar , Peter Boal, Jock Soto, Benjamin Millepied and legendary ballet teacher Olga Kostrizky This is the story of Sokvannara ( Sy) Sar , a sixteen-year old Cambodian dancer who was discovered by ballet patron Anne Bass on a trip to Angkor Wat in 2000. Bass decided to offer the young man an opportunity to study ballet at the School of American Ballet in New York, where he was accepted after private coaching by Olga 
Kostrizky, head of SAB’s boys program. What unfolds is a tentative negotiation between Sy and American ballet and culture. The film follows Sy’s development from the serene countryside of Southeast Asia to the high-power rehearsal studios of New York, and finally to the stage of the Pacific Northwest Ballet in Seattle. Bonus: include extended performance footage, photo gallery, film notes. Blu -ray 88 min. plus bonus features, 2010
