Synopsis

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.

Reviews

"Bobbi Jene" os ofrece una cata de cómo funciona una coreógrafa, pero registra sobre todo como se siente.

— Elizabeth Zimmer · Village Voice

Verdadero, convincente y personal, "Bobbi Jene" es un retrato vital de una artista inspiradora.

— Chloe Walker · Film Inquiry

"Bobbi Jene" es una historia de amor que refleja los dilemas y las inevitables consecuencias de la ambición. Es una película sobre la lucha de una mujer para ser independiente, que intentaba mantener la atención con su arte en el mundo competitivo de la danza.

— Cineuropa
