“A long-overdue tribute to Robert Joffrey and his vibrant company, the Joffrey Ballet.” —The New Yorker
2012. U.S. Bob Hercules. 82 min. Color. Documentary.
A modern retelling of the groundbreaking cultural treasure known as the first truly American dance company, the Joffrey Ballet. Narrated by Tony and Emmy Award winner Mandy Patinkin and directed by Bob Hercules, the film documents how The Joffrey Ballet revolutionized American ballet by daringly combining modern dance with traditional ballet technique, combining art with social statement and setting ballets to pop and rock music scores.
