REDTalks featured Jock Soto and Water Flowing Together, a compelling, intimate portrait of one of the most recognized and influential modern ballet dancers in the world.
Of Navajo heritage, Soto was just 16 when George Balanchine selected him to join the New York City Ballet where he eventually became the most choreographed dancer in the company's history. Soto danced featured roles by George Balanchine, Peter Martins, Jerome Robbins and Christopher Weldon that had often been created for him.
While Jock Soto is an artist who found his medium of expression in dance, the film explores more than Soto's career- it is as much about the complexities of the man, about heritage, identity and transition.
"Ballet is a man called Jock." ~ The New York Times
