Trailer for the docu-drama Bobbi Jene, which screened at the Melbourne International Film Festival.

In 2005, American dancer Bobbi Jene Smith followed venerated choreographer Ohad Naharin to Tel Aviv and became a star of his world-famous Batsheva Dance Company. A decade later and pushing 30, she faces a personal and professional crossroads: leaving behind her passionate new love with fellow company member Or Schraiber – ten years her junior – she heads home in order to branch out on her own, kickstarting her solo career with a deeply personal, provocative choreography bound to get viewers talking!

With remarkable intimacy and emotional depth, director Elvira Lind charts the journey of a woman finding her place in the world, and the sacrifices she has to make to realise her ambitions. As Smith navigates the life-altering challenges of maintaining a relationship across international borders, reconnecting with her conservative family and starting again from scratch in an intensely competitive field – her incredible choreography pulls no punches just to break down doors – Lind is there with her camera, capturing it all with naked honesty; in addition to wining Tribeca’s top Documentary prize, she also took home the festival’s Best Cinematography award.
