Dance Party, USA is part of a new direction for independent film: homemade movies that feel more personal than communitarian and, as a result, seem less moralizing and dogmatic than the familiar, tired Sundance model.

Given the obvious financial restraints (the total budget was $3,000), maybe Dance Party should have been a dynamite short.
