THE WHITE CROW, from director Ralph Fiennes, charts the iconic dancer Rudolf Nureyev’s famed defection from the Soviet Union to the West, despite KGB efforts to stop him. As a member of the world-renowned Kirov Ballet Company, Nureyev travelled to Paris in 1961. The young dancer was eager to consume all the culture, art and music the dazzling city had to offer. But the KGB officers who watched his every move became increasingly suspicious of his behavior and his friendship with the young Parisienne Clara Saint. When they finally confront Nureyev with a shocking demand, he is forced to make a heart-breaking decision, one that may change the course of his life forever and put his family and friends in terrible danger. From Nureyev’s poverty-stricken childhood in the Soviet city of Ufa, to his blossoming as a student dancer in Leningrad, to his arrival in Paris in the early 1960s and a nail-biting stand-off at the Le Bourget airport, THE WHITE CROW is the true story of an incredible journey by a unique artist who transformed the world of ballet forever.
