‘First Position’

by Kaori Shoji

Director: Bess Kargman

Language: English

“First Position” is director Bess Kargman’s understated but powerful depiction of children aged 9 to 15 who have trained for most of their lives to compete in the famed Youth America Grand Prix, hoping to launch their professional dancing careers. Don’t miss Michaela DePrince, adopted from a West African orphanage after her father was murdered and her mother died of starvation. A transcendent experience.
