SF Premiere Screening of THE DANCER
VIEW PHOTOS From Event
After 21 years, THE DANCER will have its San Francisco Premiere at the Brava Theater Center. The 1994 film follows the young and gifted Katja Björner through years of intensive training at the Royal Swedish Ballet School as she develops into an international ballet star. Filmed with an eye toward conveying the physical aspects of dancing — the pain, sweat, and tears, as well as the exquisite beauty — THE DANCER captures the fierce determination and struggle that goes into the desire to dance at the highest level.
