The Irish Film Institute is delighted to partner with iPride and Indeed for a special screening of And Then We Danced. At the Irish Film Institute, we celebrate diverse stories and storytellers, on and off screen. We hope you enjoy the screening and look forward to welcoming you to IFI@Home again soon.
Mareb (Levan Gelbakhiani) lives with his working class family in Tbilisi; coming from a dancing lineage, it is expected that he and his brother David will carry on the tradition, though David is more interested in partying than in the rigorous training required to perfect the challenging routines. Mareb has been dancing duets with Mary (Ana Javakishvili) since childhood, and it is understood that they are a couple, though Mary is frustrated by his lack of passion away from the dancefloor. When Irakli (Bachi Valishvili), a gifted dancer from another town joins the company, he awakens in Mareb a heady mix of jealousy and attraction, dangerous feelings in a strictly conservative society.
