The Screen Guide

POINTES is a non-dialogue documentary – lyrical and fluid in tone, with a naturalistic hard edge. It focuses on the life of pointe shoes at various stages, from their making in the Bloch's shoe factory through their breaking in, performance and discardment. The documentary draws a strong parallel between the lives of the shoes to that of a dancer's career.
