Best of 2017: DANCER

Dir: Steven Cantor
United Kingdom / United States / Russian Federation / 2016 / 86mins

★★★★★  "A flawless piece of cinema" - Live For Films

Directed by Academy Award-nominated Steve Cantor, Dancer offers a uniquely personal portrait of a most singular man and dancer. Blessed with astonishing power and poise, Sergei Polunin took the dance world by storm and became the Royal Ballet’s youngest ever principal. At the peak of his success, aged 21, he walked away, driven to the brink of self-destruction by stardom - his talent more a burden than a gift.

From archive footage of Polunin training at the age of 4 to be an Olympic gymnast, to intimate material shot by both his parents, and in-depth interviews with family, friends, colleagues through to footage of Sergei’s life on and off the stage now, we witness every step of his journey.

Dancer is an unprecedented look into the life of a complex young man who has made ballet go viral.

Dancer is back on the DocHouse screen as part of our Best of DocHouse 2017 season
