Dance with Fire

Dance with Fire is a 2D Animated Short Film about a bharatanatyam dancer that must put on a divine performance in a seemingly empty Hindu temple. The main character Ha'ri has been chosen by the temple priests who tell her that "every one hundred years the Gods descend on the earth and only one is chosen to dance with fire." If the dance doesn't go well and the Gods leave disappointed it could mean 100 years of bad fortune for the world.
