Movie Info

On a trip to Angkor Wat in Siem Reap, Cambodia in January 2000, filmmaker Anne Bass came across a sixteen-year-old boy who moved her immensely with his amazing natural charm and grace as a dancer. A longtime devotee of the world of dance, Bass felt compelled to give this young boy the opportunity to leave his home and follow a dream that he could not yet have fully imagined. From the serene countryside of Southeast Asia to the halls of New York's School of American Ballet to the stage of the Pacific Northwest Ballet in Seattle "Dancing Across Borders" chronicles the intimate and triumphant story of a boy who was discovered, and who only much later discovered all that he had in himself.

Less than an hour and a half long, it seems to take forever to end.

The rehearsal footage of Sy is repetitive, but the peculiar dynamic between sponsor and protégé is fascinating.

Do-gooder vanity projects don't come more self-aggrandizing than this.

There are times when the subject of a documentary transcends merely adequate filmmaking, and that is very much the case with Dancing Across Borders...

Sometimes with documentaries, the best intentions have a way of making decent people look bad. Dancing Across Borders is a dismaying case in point.

In carefully edited clips from his Cambodian years (brief mention is made of Pol Pot's devastating influence), as well as later performances in the United States, Bass demonstrates his stunning leaps and graceful partnering.
