Synopsis: Tomer Heymann's MR. GAGA tells the story of the internationally acclaimed choreographer Ohad Naharin, who created the daring form of dance and "movement language" Gaga. After performing with the prestigious Martha Graham dance company when he was 22, he moved back to Israel to become the Artistic Director of the Batsheva Dance Company, developing Gaga within his own ensemble. Meeting him at a critical turning point in his personal life, this spirited and insightful documentary will introduce you to a man with great artistic integrity and an extraordinary vision. MR. GAGA tells Naharin's personal story of a controversial, political, and always entertaining figure, and his constant battle for artistic perfection. Eight years in the making, MR. GAGA traces Naharin's artistic roots using personal family footage, intimate rehearsal footage, extensive unseen archive material and stunning dance sequences. Heymann weaves a marvelous tale of what it takes to be a genius. “I can’t wait for this movie! Batsheva Dance Company has been contributing groundbreaking work into the field of modern dance for decades - and Naharin is their fearless leader. With this film we get to look into his history and process, witness the raw passion of his dances, and experience the gritty, juicy, sweaty joy of dance-making. Bring it on!” –Azriel LaMarca.
