Swan Song – Feb. 29th

The Bozeman Doc Series presents the Montana premiere of the critically acclaimed new documentary, Swan Song, on Thursday, February 29th, at 7pm at the Emerson Center.

Swan Song immerses viewers inside one of the world’s leading ballet companies as it mounts a monumental and legacy-defining new production of Swan Lake, directed by ballet icon Karen Kain as she bids farewell to the company she’s become synonymous with. The verité-driven feature documentary closely follows Kain and a group of young dancers drawn from across the National Ballet of Canada’s ranks, weaving the ballet’s dramatic creation process with intimate scenes from the subjects’ personal lives as they push toward one of the most significant opening nights in their company’s history.

“Remarkable…a raw, gorgeous, provocative, enlightening piece of art.” The Globe & Mail

“A stunning documentary” Deadline

“An artfully anxiety-inducing backstage drama….A vérité portrait of the sweat, tears, triumphs,and many advils entailed in mounting a ballet.” POV Magazine
