THE GRAND BALL / LE GRAND BAL 
(N/C PG)

In the middle of the summer, in an idyllic countryside location about 165 miles south of Paris, several thousand people come together to dance. This extraordinary annual event is chronicled in the documentary from writer-director Laetitia Carton. Mixing observational elements with personal reflections in voiceover about the filmmaker’s own relationship with and observations about dance, this is a portrait of a very specific event and an exploration of dancing in both individual and more general terms. 

 

Director Laetitia Carton | 2018 | France | 99 mins 

Laetitia Carton will introduce Le Grand Bal at Edinburgh Summerhall on Thu 4 Dec and take part in a Q&A and attend a dance event.
