"I want to get to that place where I have no strength to hide anything." After a decade of stardom in Israel as a part of the illustrious Batsheva Dance Company, dancer / choreographer Bobbi Jene Smith at age 30 pursues a solo career in the U.S. Winner of the Best Documentary prize at the Tribeca Film Festival, Bobbi Jene is a portrait of a dancer which is an unflinching, wondrous and embarrassing as life itself. Note: contains nudity.
These programs made possible in part by a grant from the Lisa and Douglas Goldman Fund.
