Summary
In Afternoon of a Faun, critically acclaimed Peabody and Emmy-award winner director-producer Nancy Buirski (The Loving Story) brings to the screen for the first time the magnificent and tragic story of Tanaquil Le Clercq. Of the great ballerinas, Le Clercq may have been the most transcendent, mesmerizing viewers and choreographers alike. Because of her extraordinary movement and unique personality on stage, she became a muse to two of the greatest choreographers in dance, George Balanchine and Jerome Robbins. She had love, fame, adoration, and was the foremost dancer of her day until it suddenly all stopped. At the age of 27, she was struck down by polio and paralyzed. She never danced again. The ballet world has been haunted by her story ever since.With a soul-stirring soundtrack and exquisite visuals, this is a story of how one woman passionately influenced an entire art form. Le Clercq was the nexus of inspiration, beauty, and invention, suddenly turned into a statistic. Afternoon of a Faun: Tanaquil Le Clercq is a frighteningly real, gracefully candid portrait of an artist. Rarely has a film revealed such a dramatic experience on such an intimate scale
