In Georgia, young dancers train from childhood to embody the national dances that are not only beloved but considered part of the lifeblood of the nation. The dream of most of them is to be selected to join the National Georgian Ballet, a goal that pits them against one another in a ferocious fight to not only be the best, but to be the best representative of a long and proud national tradition.
Set in modern Tiblisi this passionate coming-of-age tale follows Merab, a competitive dancer who is thrown off balance by the arrival of Irakli, a fellow male dancer with a rebellious streak.
Purbeck Film Festival: Supported by the BFI and its South West Regional Hub the Purbeck Film Festival aims to provide a rich variety of cinematic experiences across a rural area which does not have easy access to foreign language, independent and classic films.
End time is estimated.
