Dancer In The Dark


Wednesday 9 October 8.30pm Channel 039

Selma is a Czech immigrant, a single mother working in a factory in rural America. Her salvation is her passion for music, specifically the all-singing, all-dancing numbers found in classic Hollywood musicals. But Selma harbours a sad secret: she is losing her eyesight and her son Gene stands to suffer the same fate if she can't save enough money to secure him an operation. When a neighbour falsely accuses Selma of stealing his savings, the drama of her life escalates to a tragic finale. Starring Bjork and Catherine Deneuve. Nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Song and Winner of Best Actress (Bjork) and the Palme D’Or at the Cannes Film Festival.
