More Details

Synopsis:
An Amazon Indian princess, in an attempt to save her rain forest home from the destructive forces of a greedy corporation, travels to Los Angeles in hopes of convincing the company to change its evil ways. There she hooks up with a rich boy from Beverly Hills and together they enter a nationally televised dance contest that the princess uses as a platform to spread her message of environmental awareness, while at the same time introducing the world to the sexually charged Brazilian dance known as the "lambada."

Notes:
Shot on location in Los Angeles, California, in Panavision; color by Fotokem. The film features three songs performed by Kid Creole & The Coconuts: "Lambada a La Creole" "Automatic" and "It's a Horror," as well as the theme song "Lambada" by Kaoma, the group that started the Lambada craze. The song became a source of controversy when it was revealed that the song's producers had taken credit for what was, in fact, a traditional Bolivian melody. "The Forbidden Dance" is one of three lambada films that came out in 1990 during the short-lived lambada craze. Also known as "Lambada - El Baile Prohibido!"
