In this astonishing film, we follow renowned choreographer Boris Eifman as he prepares for the opening night of his new ballet. Part fly-on-the-wall documentary; part philosophical study on the purpose of dance, it uniquely captures the frustration, fury and exhilaration of rehearsal.
Now in his 60s, having choreographed 40 ballets and won numerous awards, Eifman believes: “Everything important that I’m meant to do is still ahead of me”.
