Abstract:

A Beautiful Tragedy is a documentary about 15-year-old Oksanna who follows her mother's dream - to see her daughter become a prima ballerina. Oksanna decides to sacrifice her youth and devote nine years of her childhood to a ballet school in Russia. In this film we encounter both jealousy and beauty, and beauty, as it turns out, comes with a price: most of the girls in the school are anorexic. From the age of eight or nine until they are grown-ups they see their parents twice a year. For most children who attend the school, ballet represents their only chance in life for a future. Every year 500 children will come to audition. 30 students will be accepted. They have beautiful dreams and work unbelievably hard to achieve their goal. After nine years of training, 30 students will graduate. Only one or two will get a job.
