Juan Alvarez Neme

2014 | 98 minutes | Uruguay, Argentina
U.S. Premiere | Director in Attendance

In 2010, Julio Bocca, one of the most revered ballet dancers of all time and a national treasure in his native Argentina, took over the Ballet Nacional Sodre of Uruguay. At the time, the company was in precipitous decline—performing in an unfinished theater, ignored internationally, and all but forgotten at home. Bocca committed himself to reviving the company and elevating it to prominence in the global cultural landscape, and his dramatic journey with the company is captured in this moving film. Art clashes with bureaucracy as the company strives for international significance and the tight-knit group of young dancers from varied backgrounds brim with hope and drama. Swirling around one of the most personally dynamic and talented artists of modern history, Avant creates a narrative tension while opening a unique and nuanced window into Uruguayan culture.
