SWEDEN’S OFFICIAL ENTRY FOR THE ACADEMY AWARD FOR BEST FOREIGN LANGUAGE FILM
Fresh from its acclaimed debut at Cannes, writer/director Levan Akin’s AND THEN WE DANCED delivers a passionate and exceptionally crafted tale of love and liberation set against the backdrop of Georgian traditional dance.
Goal-oriented rule-follower Merab (Levan Gelbakhiani) has trained most of his life for a spot in the National Georgian Ensemble, but he’s thrown off balance with the arrival of Irakli, a naturally gifted dancer with a rebellious streak who awakens in him a mixture of rivalry and desire. Sweden’s official selection for Best International Feature Film at the 2019 Academy Awards, AND THEN WE DANCED offers a riveting and visceral lead performance from newcomer Gelbakhiani, while featuring dynamic cinematography and dance sequences that will leave you breathless.
