CINEMATOGRAPHERS: David Barba, James Pellerito

A touching and insightful film which offers a unique behind-the-scenes portrait of Brazilian ballet star Marcelo Gomes. Widely considered the greatest partner of his generation, every ballerina desires to dance with him. Misty Copeland, Polina Semionova and Diana Vishneva all attest to his technique, sensitivity and connection that create a perfect pas de deux.

From his struggle to reach the top of the ballet world, to his complicated relationship with his father, the film takes us on Marcelo’s journey across international stages around the world. Currently celebrating his 20th year with American Ballet Theatre, Marcelo remains at the peak of his game.

David Barba and James Pellerito founded Retribution Media in 2005. Barba’s short film Adios, para Siempre won Urbanworld VIBE’s Best Short Film Award in 2006. Pellerito’s short film Maree won awards at 25 of the 100 festivals worldwide that screened it. Together they created Pop Star on Ice, a feature documentary, and the TV series Be Good Johnny Weir. American Cheerleader was their second feature documentary.
