Screening October 27th at the Lido Theatre, Medellín
La Dany is a new feature documentary from Julie and Jim Giles of Brother & Sister Productions. Shot on the streets in Medellín, Colombia, it documents the life of transvestite street performer, Dany Castaño Quintero, better known as “la Dany.” For over 20 years, “la Dany” has entertained the crowds gathered in Bolívar Park following Sunday evening mass. A unique talent among the buskers and indigents, Dany struggles to rise above a grueling day-to-day existence to one day realize her star-filled dreams.
For a street performer so easily recognizable, I never saw her during my time in Medellin.
