ABOUT THE FILM

Paris Opera Ballet, bastion of autocratic leadership and traditional ballet, is about to change. Benjamin Millepied, best known outside the ballet world as the choreographer for the film Black Swan, has been selected as the new director. Trying to avoid conflict, he gathers young dancers who are thrilled to find a new way of creating ballet. Reset follows the creative process in fascinating detail, from Millepied’s first tentative responses to the music, through his juggling of art and bureaucracy (“Where is Benjamin?” his secretary constantly moans), to stunning rehearsal footage and the glorious finished ballet, Clear, Loud, Bright, Forward.
