Filmmakers Dan Geller and Dayna Goldfine pay tribute to the revolutionary 20th Century dance troupe Ballets Russes in this enthralling documentary. From their humble origins as Russian refugees residing in turn-of-the-century Paris to dazzling feats of artistry this documentary maps the companys illustrious career right up until its demise in the 1950s and 60s (brought about by rising costs rocketing egos outside competition and internal mismanagement). Culled from archive footage and infused with juicy anecdotal interviews from many of the companys glamorous stars BALLETS RUSSES treats modern audiences to a rare glimpse of the phenomenon that transformed the face of ballet for generations to come.
