Director/cinematographer Jody Lee Lipes takes us backstage at New York City Ballet as Justin Peck, a young up-and-coming choreographer, crafts a new work. From first rehearsal to world premiere, the film follows Peck as he collaborates with musicians, lighting designers, costume designers and his fellow dancers to create NYCB’s 422nd new ballet. BALLET 422 is an unembellished vérité portrait of a process that has never before been documented at New York City Ballet in its entirety. (U.S., 2014, 72m, DCP, Magnolia Pictures)
