You may be familiar with Adams's iconic black-and-white nature photographs. But do you know about the artist who created these images? As a child, Ansel Adams just couldn't sit still. He felt trapped indoors and never walked anywhere --- he ran. Even when he sat, his feet danced. But in nature, Ansel felt right at home. He fell in love with the gusting gales of the Golden Gate, the quiet whisper of Lobos Creek, the icy white of Yosemite Valley and countless other remarkable natural sights.

The Cambodian Dancer is the true story of a Cambodian refugee --- a dancer and teacher --- who built a life in the US after fleeing the Khmer Rouge. She became a counselor to other Cambodian refugees and created a school of dance for children. Her gift of hope was to teach children in the Cambodian community the traditional dances of Cambodia so that young people growing up far away from the land of their ancestors would know about their culture.
