And Then We Danced (15)

PREVIEW PRIOR TO GENERAL RELEASE
A teenager in a traditional Georgian dance troupe discovers his own identity within a deeply conservative society.
The National Georgian Ensemble upholds a form of dance whose punishing and staccato military moves hark back to the Middle Ages. Sensitive and impulsive, Merab is struggling to maintain his lead role within the ensemble. When a newcomer arrives to challenge his position, their rivalry translates into something else. Less a coming-out narrative, and more than a coming-of-age film, this sets the beauty and stifling social values of Tbilisi alongside the energy and engaging physicality of dancer Levan Gelbakhian as Merab.
