Nicholas Snow welcomes writer, director, cinematographer and editor Amir Jaffer with producer Liz Grillo of the short film Mi Vida En El Baile / My Life in Dance.  The synopsis: At ninety Miguel Santos continues to share his love of Flamenco on stage and in workshops in San Francisco. In this short biopic, Miguel traces his artistic journey and shares events of his life that took him across the United States and to Spain, where he learned from the legends of Flamenco.  

Amir began "exploring the world of filmmaking with his father’s video camera at the age of thirteen. He realized his childhood dream when he began working as an Independent Producer in San Francisco in 2005.  His earlier work focused more on content and subject matter than on a particular visual style. Influenced by filmmakers Rainer Ferner Fasbinder, Pedro Almodovar and Deepa Mehta, Amir focused on social issues that intrigued him and which ranged from gender identity to domestic violence to sexuality."
