世界級「美國青年舞蹈大獎賽」Youth America Grand Prix 舞台血淚史
橫掃多項國際大獎 三藩市紀錄片影展評審團獎「最佳影片」、多倫多國際影展及紐約紀錄片影展「觀眾之選」獎

芭蕾有多美麗,訓練便有多殘酷。為了在一年一度的頂級舞台 「美國青年舞蹈大獎賽」 一鳴驚人,每年有超過五千名9至19 歲的年輕人為芭蕾切齒血拼。他們渴望奪取巨額獎學金,或贏得世界級舞蹈團的一紙聘書,但每個人只有五分鐘定生死。來自哥倫比亞的祖安獨自來到美國為芭蕾夢打拼,累了只管提醒 自己要回報父母。英日混血姊弟美子和朱爾得天獨厚,小姊姊跟著虎媽全天候苦練,小弟弟卻愛跳不跳。外形儼如芭比的美少女麗碧卡在眾人眼中是完美舞者,但她毫無野心。在西非戰禍中淪為孤兒的14歲蜜姬娜,被美國家庭領養後夢想成真穿起芭蕾舞衣來,但黝黑膚色為她設下意想不到的障礙。還有11歲美國金髮少年艾雲和同齡以色列少女佳雅,兩個語言不通的孩子在多次比賽中做了兩小無猜。台上一分鐘,台下十年功,曾經習舞的導演碧斯嘉敏花了多年時間向世界證明,追求完美境界背後,有汗水有痛苦,但那份熱血足以震撼人心。
Every year, thousands of aspiring dancers enter one of the world's most prestigious ballet competitions, the Youth America Grand Prix, where lifelong dreams are at stake. In the final round, with hundreds competing for only a handful of elite scholarships and contracts, practice and discipline are paramount, and nothing short of perfection is expected. Bess Kargman's award-winning documentary, FIRST POSITION, follows six young dancers as they prepare for a chance to enter the world of professional ballet, struggling through bloodied feet, near exhaustion and debilitating injuries, all while navigating the drama of adolescence. A showcase of awe-inspiring talent, tenacity and passion, FIRST POSITION paints a thrilling and moving portrait of the most gifted young ballet stars of tomorrow. The film was the first runner-up for Best Documentary at the Toronto International Film Festival where it premiered, winning the Jury Prize at the San Francisco Doc Fest, and audience awards for Best Documentary at the Dallas International Film Festival and at the Portland International Film Festival, where Bess Kargman also won Best New Director.
