Special Screening of “Restless Creature”

Documentary | 2017 | 91 minutes | Directed by Linda Saffire and Adam Schlesinger

This film will be shown indoors in the theater. Post-Screening Q&A with the film’s subject, former NYC Ballet Principal Dancer, Wendy Whelan and Director Adam Schlesinger.

In 1984, Wendy Whelan joined the New York City Ballet as an apprentice; by 1991, she had been promoted to Principal Dancer. She quickly became a revered and beloved figure throughout the dance world. Wrote Roslyn Sulcas, “her sinewy physicality, her kinetic clarity, and her dramatic, otherworldly intensity have created a quite distinct and unusual identity.” Linda Saffire and Adam Schlesinger’s film follows this extraordinary artist throughout a passage of life that all dancers must face, when she must confront the limitations of her own body and adapt to a different relationship with the art form she loves so madly.

An NYFF54 selection. An Abramorama release.
