With director Elvira Lind and dancer Bobbi Jene Smith in person!

Winner of Best Documentary Feature, Tribeca Film Festival. After a decade of stardom in Israel, American dancer Bobbi Jene Smith decides to leave her prominent position at the world-famous
Batsheva Dance Company, and the love of her life, to return to the United States. to create her own boundary-breaking art. Tracking the personal and professional challenges that await her, Elvira Lind’s film Bobbi Jene intimately documents the dilemmas and inevitable consequences of Bobbi Jene’s personal and artistic ambition. Bobbi Jene is a candid and riveting film, one of the best movies about the growth and transformation of an artist. “A treatise on art, ambition, long-distance relationships, and the struggle to find one’s own voice, the film unfolds with uncommon grace.” (Tim Grierson, Screen International)
