Having spent many an intimate hour attending rehearsals, watching magnetizing dance performances and studying rare, archived materials, director Tomer Heymann has created a unique cinematic approach that he employs to present the fascinating character and life story of Ohad Naharin, artistic director of the Bathsheva Dance Company and inventor of the Gaga language. The film has been shown in leading festivals around the world, including SXSW, HotDocs, San Fransisco, Munich, Full Frame, Tempo and London, and won 11 international awards. Mr. Gaga became the most successful documentary film in the history of Jewish cinema in Israel.
