And Then We Danced

SUPPORT

Merab (Levan Gelbakhiani), a Georgian teenager descending from a line of dancers, has trained his entire life toward one goal: to dance in the Georgian National Ballet.
In the meantime, he is a National Ensemble dancer, challenged by a demanding teacher and rigorous rehearsals. However, the most significant obstacle he faces are the romantic feelings he develops for Irakli (Bachi Valishvili), a new dancer who becomes Merab’s rival and threatens to overshadow him. Levan Akin’s third film, featuring impressive performances by two actors-dancers and a host of beautiful Georgian dance, is an elegant and heartfelt love story exploring ideas of cultural identity, sexuality and self-expression, set within the repressive limits of conservative Georgian society. (Dir. by Levan Akin, 2019, Sweden/Georgia/France, in Georgian with English subtitles, 105 mins., Not Rated)
