Nijinsky – The Making of “The Diaries of Vaslav Nijinsky”

PCO-Doco[1]A documentary on the making of “The Diaries of Vaslav Nijinsky” by Paul Cox.
Two hours of behind the scenes footages – actors and performers in action, film production, interviews with the creators and performers.

“Vaslav Nijinsky” is a film very much in the same tradition as “Vincent – The Life and Death of Vincent Van Gogh”, using the words from his diary and the many existing images from the Ballet Russe. In this film however, the camera ‘dances’ and we see from Nijinsky’s point of view what it feels like to be a dancer. We follow the mind of a genius as he releases his delicate hold upon reality, and staggers along the outer verge of reason towards the end.
