Get an intimate look at prima ballerina Wendy Whelan (who recently staged Pictures at an Exhibition at Pacific Northwest Ballet) as she prepares to leave New York City Ballet after a three-decade career. An awe-inspiring dancer, who broke gender and age stereotypes in the strict field of classical ballet, Whelan’s strength, grace and determination have led her to dance all over the world, working with some of contemporary dance’s biggest luminaries. This documentary shows rare footage of her dancing in childhood, on her own as a teenager in New York and, finally, her ascent to ballet stardom with NYCB.
