Merce Cunningham, A Legacy of Dance
Marie-Hélène Rebois, 2012
France | 56 minutes

Two years after Merce Cunnigham’s death, during the Last Tour and the formidable digital undertaking to ensure his repertory lives on, Rebois’s documentary follows the challenge that lawyers, directors, dancers, musicians, archivist, repeaters, managers, try to meet as they follow the "Cunningham Legacy Plan" they have developed with Merce himself before his death.

Screening with:
Choros
Michael Langan and Terah Maher | 2011 | USA | 13m 

In the tradition of Marey and McLaren, Michael Langan and Terah Maher combine music, dance, and image multiplication to create a film that enhances our perception of motion. Choros delivers a visually mesmerizing narrative in three movements, following a dancer's (Maher) experience of discovery, euphoria, and rebirth through this surreal phenomenon. Featuring music from Steve Reich's "Music for 18 Musicians."

Circling
Douglas Rosenberg | 2012 | USA | 14m

Circling is a meditation on place, the passing of time and the cyclical nature of life. Featuring renowned choreographer/dancer Sally Gross and shot at locations including architect Frank Lloyd Wright’s Taliesin, Circling is a poetic rendering of what it means to be deeply at home in both the landscape and the dancing body.
