And Then We Danced (15) + ScreenTalk with Director Levan Akin via Skype

Two young male dancers look at each in a dance studio

Softness is a dangerous affliction for the boys of the National Georgian Ensemble in Levan Akin’s And Then We Danced.

To have soft limbs is to be weak, to lose strength in your muscles is to fail. This practice, rooted in military moves and Middle Age holiday celebrations, occupies the mind and body of Merab (dancer Levan Gelbakhiani in his first acting role), a sensitive and headstrong student at the academy.

He’s talented, and a touch frustrated by the cultural structures inhibiting his livelihood. But he’s still mostly in control of his ambition, until a rival dancer enters the equation and thaws his cool veneer with a threat. 

Following the film we are delighted to welcome director Levan Akin for a ScreenTalk.
