Tomer Heymann’s MR. GAGA is a unique documentary experience that tells the story of the internationally acclaimed choreographer Ohad Naharin, who created the daring form of dance and “movement language” Gaga. When he was 22, he was invited to perform with the prestigious Martha Graham dance company, and attended Juilliard and the School of American Ballet simultaneously. But Ohad would not be happy until he could do exactly what he wanted. Moving back to Israel, Naharin became the Artistic Director of the Batsheva Dance Company, developing gaga within his own ensemble. Even after achieving worldwide acclaim, Naharin continues to fight every day, sometimes with his own dancers, once even with the president of Israel, to make his vision come to life.

"Gaga looks like fun, but the soul-revealing MR. GAGA makes clear the sacrifice Naharin’s dedication has exacted from family and dancers alike"
Jane Horwitz - WASHINGTON POST

"When someone can talk as well as they create, the rewards are considerable, as the documentary "Mr. Gaga: A True Story of Love and Dance" convincingly demonstrates."
Kenneth Turan - LOS ANGELES TIMES

"MR. GAGA is an intense pleasure: the extensive footage of Naharin's choreography in performances over the years, beautifully captured by Ital Rziel, gives an intimate and thrilling glimpse of what he is all about. Naharin's work is distinct."
Sheila O'Malley - ROGEREBERT.COM

"Interweaves archival film with contemporary material to masterfully portray one of the most vital dance artists of the past half-century."
Elizabeth Zimmer - VILLAGE VOICE
