THEN COMES THE BODY (2023) Tribeca 2023

"First comes the heart then comes the body"

Glorious documentary about a ballet school in  Lagos, Nigeria. The founder of the school knew nothing about ballet and self-taught himself and his students. When a video of one of them dancing in the rain went viral he school was put on the map and suddenly his charges were being accept into schools across the globe.

This is a magnificent celebration of the school, the students and dance itself. Seriously there are images here which are going to hang with you forever…and possibly put the film in the running for an Oscar next year.

Highly recommended.
