Reset takes us into the privacy and creative process of one of modern dance’s most beautiful minds. Benjamin Millepied agreed to allow Thierry Demaizière and Alban Teurlai to shadow him with their camera for three months to record his creative work right from the first rehearsals through to opening night. It is total immersion that lets us appreciate the man’s creativity, his engagement and all the hard work that led him to be named director of dance at the Paris Opera House.
Reset documents the creation Benjamin Millepied’s first ballet as Artistic Director of the Paris Opera Ballet, the oldest national ballet company in the world, and one of the most prestigious. The appointment of Millepied, best-known for his choreography for the film “Black Swan,” was an untraditional choice and his first ballet was eagerly anticipated. The film shows a work of love and the creation of beauty.
