Pole, Dancer, Movie

Original title Rakdanit, Amood ve Seret


Pole dancing may have started in strip clubs, but over the past few years it has won international recognition as an art form, a sport and a means of empowering women. Director Isri Halpern follows the founder of Israel\’s first pole dancing studio Neta Lee Levy, as she competes for the European title champion – along with the realities of everyday life as a daughter of a traditional Moroccan home, business owner – and a woman in the modern world. Halpern reexamines the relationship between filmmaker and subject and reveals an outspoken and frank woman who challenges the world she lives in no less than the world she came from. An artist that demonstrates without apology or a sense of victimhood that, at the dawn of the twenty-first century, a woman in a bikini and high heels may also be made of the same material champions are made of.
