Synopsis

Internationally-acclaimed choreographer Ohad Naharin created the daring form of dance and "movement language" Gaga. When he was 22, he was invited to perform with the prestigious Martha Graham dance company, and attended Juilliard and the School of American Ballet simultaneously. But Naharin would not be happy until he could do exactly what he wanted. Moving back to Israel, Naharin became the Artistic Director of the Batsheva Dance Company, developing Gaga within his own ensemble. Even after achieving worldwide acclaim, Naharin continues to fight every day, sometimes with his own dancers, once even with the president of Israel, to make his vision come to life. This look at Naharin at a critical turning point in his personal life combines intimate rehearsal footage, unseen archive material and stunning dance sequences to explore what it takes to be a genius and the beauty that art can bring to this world.
