Giulia Tonelli, professional principal dancer at the Zurich Opera House, has missed the stage.
After giving birth to her son, she returns to work from maternity leave. Giulia must struggle to keep her place in the elite ballet company – and find a balance between the competitive world of dance and her new family life.
The documentary BECOMING GIULIA delves into the microcosm of a grand opera house.
Filmmaker and former ballet dancer Laura Kaehr follows her protagonist up close and personal as she tries, with her passion for ballet, to master the demanding balancing act between motherhood and professional dancing while challenging old-fashioned stereotypes.
