After a decade of stardom in Israel, American dancer Bobbi Jene takes intensity to a new level when she decides to leave behind her star position at the world-famous Batsheva Dance Company, as well as the love of her life, to return to the US to create her own boundary breaking performances. A love story, the film portrays the dilemmas and inevitable consequences of ambition. It is a film about a woman’s fight for independence and her attempt to succeed with her own art in the extremely competitive world of dance.
The film premiered at Tribeca Film Festival where it won 3 awards, including best documentary. It was also selected for Visions du Réel in Nyon and Hot Docs in Toronto. Elvira Lind graduated from the CityVarsity School of Media and Creative Arts in Cape Town in 2005. Her first long documentary, Songs for Alexis (2014), was selected for IDFA and has also screened at Hot Docs, among other festivals.
