The one-hour film will take viewers behind-the-scenes with the incomparably talented artists who created RAkU. The film explores the multi-dimensional creative process, which brought together a confluence of Eastern and Western cultures in music and dance. It will feature the full, stunning RAkU ballet performance, the contributions of Butoh and marital arts advisors, chanting Zen monks and the rigors of rehearsals with Yuri Possokhov.
