Ballets Russes

This historical documentary provides and intimate portrait of a group of pioneering artists--now in their 70s, 80s and 90s--who gave birth to modern ballet. If you're not intimately familiar with the history of ballet, this film's wealth of archival footage will certainly enlighten you. If, on the other hand, you know a thing or two about the art, you're probably best suited to appreciate this film's abundance of detail. The oral histories these still vibrant dancers relate are packed with wit, intrigue, bravado and--most of all--passion. 118 minutes Unrated.
