Dancing Dreams (Tanztršume)
A ballet film that captures the hearts of the dancers themselves, Dancing Dreams celebrates the work of world-famous, visionary choreographer Pina Bausch. Bausch selected 40 teenagers to be part of her dance piece Contact Zone. Dancing Dreams follows them through ten months of challenging rehearsals, from their first attempts at expressing themselves in movement through to the long-awaited Opening Night. Pina Bausch died shortly after the film was completed, making it a testament to the genius of one of ballet's greats.
