SCREENING award-winning documentary Bobbi Jene

After a decade of stardom in Israel, American dancer Bobbi Jene decides to leave behind her prominent position at the world-famous Batsheva Dance Company, as well as the love of her life, to return to the U.S. to create her own boundary breaking art. Tracking the personal and professional challenges that await her, Elvira Lind’s film lovingly and intimately documents the dilemmas and inevitable consequences of ambition. BOBBI JENE delves into what it takes for a woman to gain her own independence in the extremely competitive world of dance and to find self-fulfillment in the process.

"I saw some of the most diverse, thoughtful work at this festival and felt that truly everyone was represented on screen. It was refreshing, eye-opening, and so very informative...It is so important that In/Motion exists and not just because of the times we are in, because it is a festival that is grounded and led with such truth, vision and inclusivity."

-Celia Rowlson-Hall
