RHYTHMS ON & OFF THE SCREEN, FIRST FEATURE AWARD

The Dancer

La Danseuse

STÉPHANIE DI GIUSTO
France, 2015
108 minutes, Color
Official website

Nothing in her background destined Loïe Fuller (the mononymous Soko) from the American Midwest to become a Belle Époque icon, much less a dancer at the Paris Opera. Even at the risk of destroying her back and damaging her eyes from the stage lights, she never falters in the quest to perfect her art. The Dancer chronicles Fuller's voyage from her humble origins to her position as celebrated innovator in the decadent world of Belle Époque Paris. Drawn there by the allure of a city seemingly kinder to artists, Fuller initially struggles to find recognition for her avant-garde and very progressive choreography. Her innovation and persistence eventually pay off and she becomes a key figure among a generation of artists and performers, paving the way for those who followed. But her meeting with Isadora Duncan (Lily-Rose Depp), a young prodigy hungry for glory, will lead her astray.—Various sources

In French with English subtitles
