This documentary follows three young children growing up in Cuba’s world-famous ballet system. It is a portrait through time, as cinematic brush strokes reveal the quiet miracle of growing up.

Daniela, Arlette, and Alex, age nine, are just beginning their training in Cuba’s world-famous ballet program. They’re young, they’re Cuban, they’re dancers. But this is where their similarities end. Through cinematic tableaux interwoven with intensely private moments at home and school, Primaria traces each child’s blossoming life over four years of grueling training until all three emerge as teenagers, poised to confront their futures

“It is a privilege,” says acclaimed filmmaker John Gianvito, “to be invited so warmly into the lives of others.”
