– The New York Times

“The result is a delightful, embracing cultural experience, one that the film’s director, Bobbi Jo Hart, warmly captures in all its offbeat glory as she follows the group.”

Rebels on Pointe – We are moving stories

We are moving stories published a great interview with the filmmaker Bobbi Jo Hart about her last film, Rebels on Pointe:

“Given my style of filmmaking has always been passionately focused on cinema verite style — following life as it happens, so to speak — my script was driven by the realities of the company and the dancers’ lives. Luckily I had a wonderful editor, Catherine Legault, who helped me craft a narrative arc from this footage, because it is much easier to start with a script and then shoot scenes to fit that script, then it is to just let life unfold and capture it on the fly, and then weaving a narrative together in the editing room!”
