Florence November 27th - December 4th 2015

International documentary film festival


MR.GAGA (Israel/Sweden/Germany/Netherlands, 2015, 97') by Tomer Heymann is the opening film of the 56th Festival Popoli that will open on Friday November 27th at 9.00 pm at the Cinema Odeon in Firenze.

Ohad Naharin, creator of the movement language “Gaga,” is one of the most important and innovative choreographers in the world. By way of archive footage of Naharin as a young dancer and about private moments with his family, acclaimed documentary film-maker Tomer Heymann pieces together a visceral portrait of Mr. Gaga, covering his first dance steps, the international ballets with Martha Graham and Maurice Béjart, up to the transition to choreography that peaked with his appointment as artistic director of Batsheva, the world-renowned dance company.
