Queen + Bejart: Ballet for Life

Queen + Bejart: Ballet for Life

Port Townsend Dance Film Festival

A unique collaboration between three cultural brands: Queen, Versace, and the visionary choreographer Maurice Béjart. At its heart is the loss of two legendary performers, Freddie Mercury and dancer Jorge Donn, both of whom died of AIDS in the early 1990s. This film marks the ultimate fusion of Queen's sweeping emotional melodies and the timeless ethereal grace and movement of ballet. It is the first and only time a full length ballet has been paired to rock music, albeit peppered with some equally well-known pieces Mozart.

Directed by Lynne Wake, U.K. 2018, 58 min.
