A film by Tomer Heymann
ISRAEL – Running Time: 99 minutes
Ohad Naharin is one of the most prominent, innovative and productive choreographers in the world.
Naharin did it tough – from early days growing up on a kibbutz, to military service (in the entertainment unit) and then to a fledgling career as a dancer with the famous dancers, Martha Graham and Maurice Béjart. After being injured he was told he would never dance again but defied the odds to take over Batsheva Dance Company and make it an international success. This story is personal and moving, it’s political (he became a national hero after a controversy against the religious orthodoxy) and is also very contemporary: his mass classes on his GAGA training are attended by people from all walks of life – not just dancers.
See a unique portrait of the 60-year old artist at the most critical point of his personal life.
