Ohad Naharin, artistic director of the Batsheva Dance Company, is celebrated as one of the most important choreographers in the world. Weaving intimate rehearsal footage with unseen archival recordings and spellbinding dance sequences assembled over eight years, the film showcases Naharin’s daring form of dance and “movement language” known as Gaga. Filmed at a critical turning point in his personal life, we meet an artistic genius with extraordinary vision whose work has a singular impact on modern dance. “One of the most vital dance artists of the past half-century.”—Elizabeth Zimmer, Village Voice.
