GETTING TO THE NUTCRACKER
Directed by Serene Meshel-Dillman
USA, 2013, English, 98 minutes
Every Christmas season, The Nutcracker Ballet is performed in cities all over the world. What does it really take to produce this ballet each year? "Getting to The Nutcracker" takes you inside the Herculean effort involved in gathering the resources, assembling the volunteers, casting the dancers, rehearsing and staging the performances of this classic ballet. Los Angeles' Marat Daukayev School of Ballet takes you behind the curtains to witness countless hours of auditions and the rigorous hours of rehearsals. The film follows dancers from ages three to eighteen, shining a light on the incredible sacrifices of time and money they make just so that they may dance.
Kristy Breneman is the Atlanta Film Festival's Programming Director; this documentary feature was chosen by Kristy for exhibition, out of over 300 documentary feature submissions, for our 2014 festival audience and filmmakers.
