Hi!  I saw the film Life is to Whistle several years ago at Lincoln Center in New York City.  Another film was playing at the same time.  It was a documentary following several women as they auditioned to be in a dance show.  It was really great, but I can’t remember the name.  Can you help?  Thanks.
