About the Movie

An astonishing documentary about a man who overcomes his disability one day at a time in New York City, Alan Govenar's new film reveals the extraordinary life of African immigrant Sidiki Conde. Sidiki lost the use of his legs to polio at age fourteen. Today, he balances his career as an performing artist with the almost insurmountable obstacles of day-to-day life in New York City. From his fifth-floor walk-up apartment, he traverses down the stairs on his hands and then navigates in his wheelchair through the sidewalks of Manhattan onto buses and into the subway. Despite his disability, he manages to teach workshops for disabled kids, busk on the street, rehearse with his musical group, bicycle with his hands, and prepare for a baby naming ceremony, where he plays djembe drums, sings, and dances on his hands-proving to the world You Don't Need Feet to Dance.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: In a film plunked somewhat unfortunately between the inspirational and the ordinary, the impressively patient Mr. Conde voices public-service-announcement sentiments about being able to do as much as anyone else. – Nicolas Rapold, New York Times, Mar 21, 2013

Fresh: This portrait of an indomitable figure overcoming his handicap proves deeply inspirational. – Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter, Mar 22, 2013

Rotten: Conde knows that being in New York has given him the opportunity to make a life, but Govenar's slow pace doesn't quite do the story justice. – Diana Clarke, Village Voice, Mar 19, 2013
