Teenage Merab has spent his life determined to be a lead dancer in the National Georgian Ensemble. When handsome and rebellious newcomer, Iralki enters the company, Merab is sent spinning. Not only has he a rival for the position he covets, but romantic feelings are ignited and in a country that strictly forbids homosexuality, trouble is just around the corner.

Passionate and deeply romantic, And Then We Danced has overtaken the hearts of audiences since it’s premiere at the Cannes Film Festival, winning prizes around the world ever since. Submit to the allure of this life-affirming film and you’ll be dancing out of the cinema.


“And Then We Danced is a sensual exploration of identity that pulsates with desire.”
– The Daily Mirror

“Luminous… one of the year’s best gay films.”
– Indiewire
