A rhythmic tale of secret love set in conservative modern-day Tbilisi, And Then We Danced follows the burgeoning romance between two dancers at a prominent Georgian dance assembly.

Merab (superbly portrayed by first time actor and professional dancer Levan Gelbakhiani) is a talented, 3rd generation dancer at the assembly. His fluid, delicate movements enrage his coach, who demands rigidity and masculinity as is the tradition of Georgian folk dance. Merab’s life is thrown into disarray with the arrival of the masculine and rebellious dancer Iralki, plunging both men into a competitive rivalry and intense chemistry, tearing Merab between his desires and duties.

A heady, ground-breaking drama that echoes Luca Guadagnino’s Call Me by Your Name, Georgian filmmaker Levan Akin casts a new, modern light on Georgia itself, entwining contemporary values and beliefs with the beating heart of Georgian culture and tradition.
