Ballet Master (2014)

Original title: Balletmeister

Documentary Duration 62:50

"Ballet Master", a documentary full of dancing, is a journey through the creative world of the internationally recognized choreographer Mai Murdmaa. Murdmaa is our guide and helps us see dancing
as a medium for creating art. "Ballet Master" visualizes choreography but mostly gives it a meaning.
Murdmaa's creative work and private life are inseparable. One ballet master, two different forms of society. One art - sacral, mystical, erotic, aesthetic - but so many difficult aspects before the creation can reach the audience.

Director: Ruti Murusalu
