If you’re in New York and you missed it last winter, Bertrand Normand’s 2006 documentary, Ballerina, will show at the Walter Reade again on Monday, August 31 at 1:30 p.m. The doc follows five Kirov ballerinas — Alina Somova, Svetlana Zakharova, Ulyana Lopatkina, Evgenia Obraztsova, and our Diana Vishneva (above in photo from ABT website).
Also at the Walter Reade this month, as part of a Natalie Wood retrospective, is Robert Wise and Jerome Robbins’ 1961 film West Side Story. It shows on August 19 at 6:15 p.m., August 21 at 8:50 p.m., and August 23 at 1:00 p.m. Eliot Feld will introduce the August 23rd showing. Go here for more info.
UPDATE: The August 31st screening of Ballerina has been cancelled; the new screening time for that film is Thursday, September 3rd at 9:00 p.m.
