    Anatomy of a Male Ballet Dancer is an intimate look into the life of Marcelo Gomes, one of the premier ballet dancers of his generation. As a principal dancer with the American Ballet Theater (ABT), Gomes has appeared on the biggest and most glamorous stages in the world. But once the stage lights go down, there is a man of tremendous grace and vulnerability. Like us, he worries about his health, wonders if he’ll find love, and tears up as he discusses family.

    Kris Erickson / Documentary Feature, Special Guests, Sunday, Oct. 8 / USA / 2017 / 84 mins
    The average lesbian coming-out stories tend to look very similar: we were in our teens or maybe our early twenties. We fell for our best friend or had a crush on a teacher. We had to tell our parents. Our best friends. Our siblings. We’d felt that way for a long time, time, but finally decided to act on it and be who we are.
