The movie Jig is big. That could have been the title even though the primary people in this documentary are small in stature. This movie about dancing and competing in the Irish way struck chords of familiarity with some people. Sue Borne made sure that she captured this world in a way that would translate to everyone. It didn’t matter if the viewer had seen this competition or not. People that decide to view this film can recognize and relate to the masterpiece of Jig.
The film does not go completely into the dancing in full scenes. There are only snippets. This is, after all, a document that puts things into perspective about the actual competitions in which these girls compete.
It’s amazing thing to watch performers with such grace and elegance take center stage as they compete with no fear. It has become a big deal and yet the number of people that know about this competition is still somewhat limited. This could have very well been the plight of the director. There may have been some sort of mission to make sure that more people were aware of this hard work and sheer dedication. It’s an Irish spotlight.
