Few films garnered as much positive buzz during this year’s edition of the Cannes Film Festival as AND THEN WE DANCED. Set in a strict ballet academy in Georgia’s capital Tbilisi, the film focuses on male dancers Merab and Irakli whose personal and professional relationship challenges Georgian society’s narrow views of masculinity. With his third feature, Levan Akin has created a film which is intensely alive with movement, emotion and drama – and which is sure to be one of this year’s biggest audience favourites.
AND THEN WE DANCED will open the 20th edition of the Bergen International Festival on September 25 2019.
Festival guests: Director Levan Akin, actors Levan Gelbakhiani, Bachi Valishvili and producer Ketie Danelia
