After You’re Gone


Feature-length fictional drama portraying acerbic, retired Bolshoi dancer Aleksey Temnikov—played by Sergey Bezrukov, one of Russia’s most celebrated actors—as he struggles to reconcile his tumultuous life and create a lasting work after being diagnosed with a degenerative and fatal condition. The film commissioned a new ballet, choreographer Radu Poklitaru’s “Symphony in Three Movements,” which is now included in the Mariinsky Ballet repertoire. Maestro Valery Gergiev plays himself in this dramatic film and also supported its production.

“Director Anna Matison and actor/husband Sergey Bezrukov both skewer and homage the idea of artistic genius in a witty ballet-world satire.” —Variety (read review)
