AND THEN WE DANCED
O. V. Georgian subtitled in Spanish and English
To the rhythm of the spectacular and vigorous steps of the traditional Georgian dance this history of sexual tension and rivalry is developed: the one between Merab, an outstanding and hard-working dancer, candidate for the only place in an international tour with his girlfriend, and the newcomer Irakli, who emerges as his immediate competitor, and also plants in him a powerful attraction. An inappropriate connection in the hypermasculine and homophobic context of the body of dancers, and of that society. Swedish candidate for the Oscars.
