And Then We Danced

  Levan Akin

  Georgia, Sweden, France 106 minutes

Watch Info


A love letter to Georgian dance, this tale of a young man yearning to break free from convention centers on a gifted performer struggling with the expectations of tradition and family while increasingly giddy with desire for a fellow student. With same-sex relationships still taboo within the ultraconservative confines of Georgian society, can Merab be true to himself and remain in his homeland?

And Then We Danced is an original and totally adorable film which opens a window onto a traditional society in all its beauty, and in all its intolerance, without contradiction but with love.”
