Merab has been training since a young age at the National Georgian Ensemble with his dance partner Mary.

"An instantly engaging tale of a young male dancer’s sexual awakening in contemporary Tbilisi, AND THE WE DANCED is personal and political, romantic and educational. "
Lisa Nesselson - SCREEN DAILY

"The result is at once empowering . . . heart-wrenching . . . and inspirational."
Jared Mobarak - THE FILM STAGE

"AND THEN WE DANCED, Swedish filmmaker Levan Akin’s luminous tour de force (and his native country’s Oscar submission for Best International Feature Film) adorns itself with the question of cultural identity as proudly as Merab dons his traditional Georgian dance robe in its rousing final scene. "
Jude Dry - INDIEWIRE
