International Centerpiece

And Then We Danced (International Centerpiece)

October 26, 2019 @ 6:00 pm

And Then We Danced

New York Premiere

Dir. Levan Akin, Sweden/France, 2019, 105 mins

Fresh from its acclaimed debut at Cannes, writer/director Levan Akin’s AND THEN WE DANCED delivers a passionate and exceptionally crafted tale of love and liberation set against the backdrop of Georgian traditional dance. Goal-oriented rule-follower Merab (Levan Gelbakhiani) has trained most of his life for a spot in the National Georgian Ensemble, but he’s thrown off balance with the arrival of Irakli, a naturally gifted dancer with a rebellious streak who awakens in him a mixture of rivalry and desire.

Sweden’s official selection for Best International Feature Film at the 2019 Academy Awards, AND THEN WE DANCED offers a riveting and visceral lead performance from newcomer Gelbakhiani, while featuring dynamic cinematography and dance sequences that will leave you breathless.

Writer: Levan Akin
Cast: Levan Gelbakhiani, Bachi Valishvili, Ana Javakishvili
