In addition to the film, check out the website’s online shop for posters and t-shirts – all perfect gifts for the holidays*. I saw and reviewed this film last March and was incredibly moved by the powerful story of growth, adaptation, and belonging that it told – all within the competitive world of ballet. Watch the trailer below, and scroll down for more info about bonus features.

-Recent performance footage of Sokvannara Sar in Mopey, Pacific Northwest Ballet, 2009
