Self-Publishing Author’s Book Becomes World-Premiere Documentary
Last year, this blog reported on the inspirational true-story of Amy Jordan and her triumph over tragedy that she shares in her autobiographical book, Dance Because You Can (a 2019 Outskirts Press Best Book of the Year Finalist). We also announced that a documentary was in the works based upon her book and her life.
It’s done, folks!
Amy’s Victory Dance will premiere in New York City on April 5th, 2020 as a selection of the ReelAbilities Film Festival: New York, which was founded in 2007 and is the largest festival in the country dedicated to promoting awareness and appreciation of the lives, stories and artistic expressions of people with disabilities.
Amy’s Victory Dance is directed by two-time Emmy Nominee Brian Thomas (who has previously worked with Michael Jackson, Pink, Jaimie Foxx, and Beyonce), produced by Spinkick Pictures, stars Amy Jordan and Chita Rivera, and runs 74 minutes long.

Are we looking at the next Documentary Oscar winner? Who knows! But with an inspirational force like Amy Jordan behind the scenes, we wouldn’t bet against it. Congratulations on all your successes and joys, Amy!
