Interview with First Position Director Bess Kargman

25 05 2012

One of the best documentaries of 2012 is a look into the ballet competition, Youth American Grand PrixFirst Position tells the story of a group of young dancers who’s lives are immersed in much more then just ballet.  Director Bess Kargman chats about her reasons for making the film, her push for diversity thru the casting, and a call for non-ballet folks to check out this award-winning documentary.  Click thru for the video interview taken at DIFF 2012.

The Audience Award for Best Documentary went to First Position at this year’s Dallas International Film Festival.  As one of those folks that loved the film I’d like to share with you this interview with Director Bess Kargman
