The road to becoming a successful male ballerina is fraught with challenging obstacles, tough decisions and punishing physical excursions that will most likely all end in failure. Places at the National Academy of Arts in Oslo, Norway are incredibly difficult to secure, and competition is impossibly strong from hundreds of dedicated and passionate young men.

Ballet Boys, from director Kenneth Elvebakk, follows the wildly differing fortunes of three friends, all vying for a coveted spot at this top dance institution. Their journey towards success or failure will test not only their technical ability and physical fitness, but also their friendship, as well as imposing a crushing mental strain on these adolescents. The results are surprisingly charming, inspiring and deeply touching.

This is a film about hope, inspiration and the resonating power of music.
In the late ‘60s, a musician was discovered in a Detroit bar by two celebrated producers who were struck by his soulful melodies and prophetic lyrics. They recorded an album that they believed was going to secure his reputation as one of the greatest recording artists of his generation. In fact, the album bombed and the singer disappeared into obscurity amid rumors of a gruesome on-stage suicide.

But a bootleg recording found its way into apartheid South Africa and, over the next two decades, it became a phenomenon. Two South African fans then set out to find out what really happened to their hero. Their investigation led them to a story more extraordinary than any of the existing myths about the artist known as Rodriguez.
