Sree is a feature length documentary about female empowerment through dance in the immigrant community within North America. Following the stories of four different women in different locations around North America, ‘Sree’ showcases how dance pulls these women away from their isolated and unhappy pasts when they first immigrated and pushes them to a fulfilling future. People have been immigrating to North America in search of a better life for centuries. They struggle with personal issues and finding their place in a new country. Some ignore their heritage- whether it’s language, food or dance- because it doesn’t fit their new surroundings. But a few, embrace their past and meld it with their present, creating a new home for themselves and others.
The film focuses on four different immigrant women in North America, showing their personal struggles and how they use dance as a means to change themselves and the world around them. The film’s narrative involves separate 20 minute character segments that detail the personal stories of four different female dancers.
