First Position (G)
Documentary follows six aspiring dancers, aged from 10 to 17, as they try to crack into the professional ballet world. They say: First Position earned critical praise for its welldrawn young characters, dramatic heft and depiction of Gen Zs dedication to perfection. Wesay: A human story in an era of artifice, First Position is required viewing for anyone with a passing interest in dance or the performing arts. Directed by Bess Kargman (debut). Running time 94 minutes. Screens at the Arts Centre Gold Coast.
