    Original title: Balletmeister

    "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.

One art - sacral, mystical, erotic, aesthetic - but so many difficult aspects before the creation can reach the audience.
