Step: Amanda Lipitz’s Docu

Fox Searchlight Pictures has set a July 7 release for Amanda Lipitz’s documentary Step, going against Sony’s Spider-Man: Homecoming.

Fox Searchlight bought rights to the movie after its premiere at the 2017 Sundance Film Fest.

The film, featuring Blessin Giraldo, Cori Grainger, Tayla Solomon, Gari McIntyre, and Paula Dofat, documents the senior year of a girls’ high-school step dance team in inner-city Baltimore.

Each student is trying to become the first in their families to attend college and striving to make their dancing a success against the backdrop of social unrest in the troubled city.
