Polina (12A)

Rigorously  trained  from  an  early  age  by  a  perfectionist  instructor,  Polina  (played  by  Anastasia  Shevtsova,  a  professional  dancer  who  has  performed  with  Saint  Petersburg’s  Mariinsky  Theatre)  is  a  promising  classical  ballet  dancer.  She  is  just  about  to  join  the  prestigious  Bolshoi  Ballet  when  she  discovers  contemporary  dance,  a  revelation  that  throws  everything  into  question  on  a  profound  level.  Diverting  from  her  plan,  she  leaves  all  her  exacting  preparation  behind  and  moves  to  France  to  work  with  famous  choreographer  Liria  Elsaj  (played  by  Academy  Award winner  Juliette  Binoche who  has  danced  with  London-based  dancer/choreographer  Akram  Khan).  But  once  there  she  is  quickly  forced  to  grapple  with  the  realization  that  determination  and  hard  work  don't  always  lead  to success.
