We hear on the grapevine (actually the internet) that Belindalee Hope is a producer on the Polish-Kiwi production Joika. The film, directed by James Napier Robertson, tells the story of elite American ballet dancer Joy Womack (pictured) one of a handful of foreigners — and only two US women — to ever penetrate Moscow’s infamously tough Bolshoi Ballet Academy. The film stars Diane Kruger and Talia Ryder (Never Rarely Sometimes Always) and will shoot in Poland next year. Belindalee was co-producer on Roseanne Liang's Shadow in the Cloud starring Chloë Grace Moretz and which premiered at TIFF 2020.
