Director Tomer Heymann’s "Mr. Gaga" tells the story of one of the most important choreographers living today, Ohad Naharin, who studied with some of the greatest dance figures of our time and created the daring new “movement language” Gaga. Meeting him at a critical turning point in his life, this spirited and insightful documentary introduces viewers to a most engaging, controversial, and always entertaining figure constantly battling for artistic perfection. Eight years in the making, 'Mr. Gaga' traces Naharin’s artistic roots with rare footage from his childhood, rehearsals, extensive unseen archival material and stunning dance sequences filmed exclusively for the film. Heymann weaves a marvelous tale of what it takes to be a genius, the exhausting toll dance can take on its performers, and finally, the stunning beauty that art can bring to this world.
