This little excerpt is from a ballet film called "Uprising" about the Polish Holocaust, choreographed by Donna Greenberg.
It is the one colorful, idyllic part of the film which tells the story of two young lovers and their attempt to escape the Nazis. Amid the havoc and horror this picture of idealized love occurs as a dream scenario.
It's a poignant moment of a remarkable ballet.
