Known as "the God of the Dance" Vaslav Nijinsky is probably the greatest male dancer of all time. In the grip of madness, Nijinsky fled to St Moritz in an attempt to escape his overbearing mentor Diaghilev. It was during this time that Nijinsky recorded his inner turmoil. The diary presents a remarkably raw, dramatic, painful and ecstatic inner world, as Nijinsky expresses his feelings profoundly, deeply, richly and honestly.

The Diaries of Vaslav Nijinsy is based on his published diary, Cahíers, written in 1919. The film portrays the dancer through the use of visual imagery seen from his point of view, reflecting salient moments of his life through the characters he was dancing at the time – Petrouchka, the Faun, the Blue God, the Golden Slave, and others.

Celebrating Nijinsky the dancer, the film explores the mind of a genius on the outer verge of reason. Not a documentary or a traditional feature film The Diaries of Vaslav Nijinsky is best described as a cinematic poem.
