Everyone Should See the New Benjamin Millepied Documentary

March 15, 2017

What made Benjamin Millepied leave the Paris Opéra Ballet after only two seasons as artistic director? A new documentary, Reset (Relève), offers some hints. Filmmakers Thierry Demaizière and Alban Teurlai followed Millepied for 39 days while he was choreographing Clear, Loud, Bright, Forward on the company. The footage shows Millepied’s frustrations over POB’s hierarchy and meager health care—and his impatience for administrative duties. But it also highlights how much he loves creating new work on rising talent, something he’ll have more opportunity to do now that he’s back at L.A. Dance Project. Available on video on demand.
