Bobbi Jene is another poignant film to add to this year’s must-see list of dance documentaries.
After 10 years living in Israel and dancing with Ohad Naharin’s Batsheva Dance, American dancer Bobbi Jene Smith decides to leave the company –and the life she’s come to know–in search of finding her own path as a dancer and choreographer.
The filmmaker, Elvira Lind, beautifully captures Smith’s struggle deciding where to go–physically, emotionally, creatively–next.
The film recently won big at the 2017 Tribeca Film Festival documentary awards, winning for Best Documentary Feature, Best Cinematography and Best Editing – an unprecedented sweep.
The film opens tonight at the Quad Cinema in New York City, with other cities to follow. Watch the trailer below:
