Canada/Colombia, 2009LA DANY is an intimate portrait of the odd, extraordinary and endearing Dany Castaño Quintero, a transgender street performer from Medellín, Colombia. For over 20 years,
Dany has entertained the crowds that gather in Bolívar Park following Sunday evening mass. Infamous for her vulgar, over-the-top performances, Dany is adored among the
community of poor and dispossessed for her humor, spirit and generosity. But away from her adoring public, life is a struggle. Surrounded by poverty and violence, Dany
forges a day-to-day existence to stay safe, sane and alive.After the film, do stay for Dany inspired performances (more details to follow!)
