Having spent 10 years as the star of famous Israeli dance company Batsheva, Bobbi Jene Smith decides to return to her native USA. It’s a momentous decision, made more difficult by the fact she is breaking from her long-time mentor, the celebrated choreographer Ohad Naharin, and she is in a blossoming relationship with a fellow dancer, Or Schraiber. Elvira Lind’s vivid, verité film won the prize for Best Documentary at Tribeca this year. It is an evocative depiction of a life in transition and a portrait of a daring, restless and brilliant artist steadfastly refusing to rest on her laurels.
