Starring Larissa Ponomarenko Directed by Tatyana Bronstein
Change is in the air.
Prima is a moving portrait of Larissa Ponomarenko, prima ballerina of the Boston Ballet, who has recently hung up her pointe shoes to pursue new avenues of
self-expression. Through flashbacks to her journey from a difficult childhood and rigorous ballet training in Russia to her emergence as the prima ballerina of
a leading American ballet company, the film captures Larissa’s uniqueness as an artist of many emotional colors. Now, as she transitions from prima ballerina
to mentor to aspiring dancers, she finds a way to reinvent herself.
