*ABOUT THE FILM*
No choreographer demands more passion, commitment, and vulnerability from
his dancers than Ohad Naharin, the tyrannical genius Artistic Director of
the Batsheva Dance Company.  Filmed over 8 years, this captivating
documentary explores the behind-the-scenes process of this revolutionary
Israeli dance company that introduced the world to a new language of modern
movement: “GAGA.”  GAGA regards movement as self-exploration, designed to
awaken the unconscious within each performer and infuse dance with
breathtaking emotional resonance. Barak and Tomer Heymann, the
documentarians behind *Who’s Gonna Love Me Now?*, explores Naharin’s life
story from his childhood on a kibbutz to his army service and early
struggles as a dancer. What results is a fascinating portrait of a man with
an extraordinary vision and unbounded creativity that changed the world of
dance forever. Come see the film that critics are calling “electric,”
“magnificent,” and “important.”
