MONDAY, NOVEMBER 13
34th Annual Olympia Film Festival presents:
POLINA
6:00pm doors / 6:30pm film
$10 general admission / $7 OFS members & students / $5 Kids

Trained from an early age by rigorous, perfectionist Professor Bojinski, Polina (a terrific Anastasia Shevtsova, whose nuanced and uncompromising performance is one of 2017’s best) is a promising classic dancer. She is just about to join the prestigious Bolchoï Ballet when she discovers contemporary dance. That throws everything into question on a profound level. Polina leaves it all behind and moves to France to work with famous choreographer Liria Elsaj (Juliette Binoche). Despite her determination and hard work to the point of obsession, Polina just can’t seem to break through. So she moves to Anvers in search of work – and a new life.
Dir. Valérie Müller and Angelin Preljocaj / 2017 / FRENCH, RUSSIAN / 108 mins

“The creative process is always an elusive thing for filmmakers to capture, but amid all the startling visuals and the splendid acting, Polina rises, gloriously, to the challenge.” – John Anderson, Wall Street Journal

“Polina is mesmerizing.” – James Berardinelli, ReelViews
