FIRST POSITION (2011) Movie Trailer: Bess Kargman

Rebecca Houseknecht First Position

First Position Trailer. Bess Kargman‘s First Position (2011) movie trailer stars Aran Bell, Gaya Bommer Yemini, Michaela Deprince, Jules Jarvis Fogarty, Rebecca Houseknecht, and Joan Sebastian Zamora. First Position‘s plot synopsis: “Follow in the inspirational footsteps of six talented ballet dancers (ages nine to nineteen) as they struggle to maintain form in the face of injury and personal sacrifice on their way to one of the most prestigious youth ballet competitions in the world. First Position is a feature length documentary about a love of dance and a drive to succeed that trumps money, politics and even war.

With unprecedented (and exclusive) access to the Youth America Grand Prix, the largest competition that awards full scholarships to top ballet schools, First Position takes audiences on a yearlong journey around the world. At a time when art, music and dance for children are severely under-funded, the film reveals the struggles and success, the pain and extraordinary beauty of an art form so many children across the globe are determined to dedicate their lives to…despite the odds.”

Looks good. It should do well in the wake of Black Swan.
