(Wed Jan 2: 6:15pm; repeats Thurs Jan 3: 2pm)
SPARTACUS
Vadim Derbenev and Yuri Grivorovich, Russia, 1975; 94m
SPARTACUS, the recently restored 1975 ballet film based on Yuri
Grigorovich's staging for the Bolshoi Ballet, stars the incomparable
Vladimir Vasilyev, Natalya Bessmertnova, Maris Liepa as Crassus and Nina
Timofeeva as Aegina, each dancer a renowned star of the famed Bolshoi
Ballet at the time. This ballet-drama is a Soviet-Era vision of the much
depicted uprising by Roman slaves, a grand cinematic spectacle set to a
score by Aram Khachaturian.

Preceeded by
REVELRY (“Dancing Song”)
Zlatko Bourek, Croatia, 1966; 9m
Amusing animated short

Program 2
(Wed Jan 2: 8:30pm; repeats Thurs Jan 3, 4:15pm)
HORIZON OF EXILE
Isabel Rocamora, United Kingdom, 2007; 22m
A journey of two women across timeless desert landscapes is punctuated by
voice testimonies of Iraqi exiles. Set to a soundtrack by Jivan Gasparyan,
the bodies betray a serene violence, travelling as though released from
consciousness or gravity, falling and recuperating, haunted by an
irrepressible past.

PINA BAUSCH
Anne Linsel, Germany, 2006; 44m
Before choreographer Pina Bausch and her Tanz-theater Wuppertal was known
the world over, triumphantly received, her new, unusual and original body
language, was ill-received. In the early days the audience (and most
critics) were irritated and confused. Tumultuous scenes in the audience
were not unusual. Pina Bausch speaks about the beginnings of the
Tanztheater and the inescapable path she felt she had to follow. She talks
about rehearsals, her pieces (more than 30 by now), her co-productions
with other cities and countries and being on tour. Some of her dancers,
the set designer Peter Pabst and the costume designer Marion Cito, all of
whom have been with Pina Bausch for decades, talk about working with her.
Shot in Venice at the Teatro Fenice, in Lisbon and Brussels, and in Wuppertal with the support of WDR Cologne, and Arte France.

LIFEFORCE #3
Lene Boel, Denmark, 2007; 10m
A hooded man discovers an environment of tunnels and machinery. An
invisible force gradually takes control of his body pulling him through
industrial spaces deep into a cave.

FRAGMENTATION
Suzon Fuks, Australia, 2007; 5.8m
Two guys, James Cunningham, Rob Tannion, absorbed in their morning paper
and their personal space, manage to find a disjointed connection with one
another.

FLYING
Phil Harder, Rosanne Chamecki, Andrea Lerner, USA, 2007; 4'37m
Ah...if it could be this easy! Introduced by the artists

Program 3
(Wed Jan 3: 6:15pm; repeats Sat Jan 5: 1pm)
FELIA DOUBROVKSA REMEMBERED
Virginia Brooks, USA, 2008; 37m
Born in 1896 in St. Petersburg, Russia, Felia Doubrovska spent 33 years
first as a student at the Imperial Ballet School and then as a famous
ballerina. After her retirement from the stage she devoted nearly the same
span of time to teaching at the School of American Ballet. This film
provides an affectionate memorial and a tribute to an artist who made a
great contribution to preserving the ballet tradition as she participated
in the training of many of the women of the New York City Ballet,
the instruments of George Balanchine's choreographic genius.
Introduced by the director.

SLEEPING BALLERINA
Ludovic Kennedy, United Kingdom, 1959; 29m
Made at Anton Dolin’s instigation by the BBC, SLEEPING BALLERINA looks at the career of Olga Spessivtzeva (1895-1991), the Aurora of Diaghilev’s
1921 production of ‘The Sleeping Princess’. Spessivtzeva was considered to be one of the most promising dancer of her generation but her career was abruptly interrupted by the mental illness. As legend has it, she lost her memory on-stage performing the mad scene in "Giselle." The film includes footage of a rehearsal of "Giselle," Act 1. In 1940 was taken to the psychiatric hospital where she remained for 22 years.

HAPPY TO BE SO
Yelena Demikovsky, USA, 2007; 47m
The Belgian born Russian dancer Oleg Briansky and his French wife,
Mireille Briane, first met in Paris and became inseparable. Premier
danseur of many established companies in Europe, named “the most exciting
male dancer in England” by Ballet Magazine in 1952, Oleg Briansky had to
cut short his career due to the early onset of arthritis. In 1963, the two
moved to New York and founded the Briansky Saratoga Ballet School. In this
film they become performers in their own life story. Introduced by the
director and Oleg and Mireille Briansky

Program 4
(Thurs Jan 3: 9pm)
FANTASTIC FLOWER SHOP
Pawel Partyka, Denmark, 2001; 15m
Inspired by the story, puppets and design of Frances Osterflet, with
animation by Krzysztof Brzozowski and Adam Wyrwas, this award winning
short should inspire fashion designers as well as story tellers. Set in a
flower shop at closing time, wires spin out from their spools to become
small characters who pluck petals to adorn themselves and dance the night
away, primarily to a Latin beat. Introduced by the director

LIFE FORCE #1
Lene Boel, Denmark, 2007; 14m
A proud inventor enjoys conducting and bringing to life the machines in
his power station. He gets carried away by the music in a pair of
headphones and the room becomes his partner in a passionate and humorous
dance. At the end of the day he returns to his house in the sky.

HERE AFTER
Wim Vandekeybus, Belgium, 2007; 65m
Through flashbacks, Here After tells the story of an isolated community in
which a power-mad tyrant commands an infanticide. In the danced scenes we
see how the characters relive their memories in the here-after; as if
their emotions and traumas were captured in the memory of their bodies.
The film shows terror and its destroying effect on a community and
questions existential themes such as life/death, culpability/penance,
identity/memory, regret/negation and power/freedom.

Program 5
(Fri Jan 4: 1pm; repeats Sun Jan 6, 6pm)
CHRISTOPHER HOUSE: AHEAD OF THE CURVE
Rosemary House, Canada, 2007; 48m
An exploration of the art and inspiration of celebrated Canadian
choreographer Christopher House, the artistic Director of Toronto Dance
Theatre who will be performing at the Joyce Theatre at the end of January,
2008. "If you've ever wondered about the point of dance, the answer is
here." John Doyle, Toronto Globe and Mail. See clip
Introduced by the director, the sister of Christopher House

FEEL THE EARTH MOVE: THE GROS MORNE PROJECT
Anne Troake, Canada, 2007; 51m
Montreal’s Coleman Lemieux Dance Company descends upon a small
community in Newfoundland’s Gros Morne National Park with a team of
Canada’s finest artists. In a week they create a dance work that
honors the land, the sea and the people of this unique place. Filmmaker
Anne Troake known for her wildly successful short PRETTY BIG DIG turns
the camera on the cultural exchange between townspeople and artists,
capturing the moment of creation and the spectacular work itself.

Program 6
(Fri Jan 4: 3:30pm; repeats Sun Jan 6: 1pm)
JOUR DE FETE
Jacques Tati, France, 1949/1995, 70m
An inept rural village postman who interrupts his duties to inspect the
traveling fair that has come to town. Influenced by too much wine and a
documentary on the rapidity of the American postal service, he goes to
hilarious lengths to speed his mail deliveries aboard his bicycle.
The films of Jacques Tati (October 9, 1908 – November 5, 1982) are built
around elaborate, tightly-choreographed visual gags and carefully
integrated sound effects. Tati plays the lead character, with his
trademark raincoat, umbrella and pipe.

Preceded by L'ECOLE DES FACTEURS
Jacques Tati, 1947, 15m
This short about postal training in rural France was expanded into a feature. Thanks to Sarah Finklea of Janus Films.

Program 7 - TRIBUTE TO PASCAL MAGNIN
(Fri Jan 4: 6:15pm)
REINES D'UN JOUR
Pascal Magnin, Switzerland, 1996; 28m
Six tumbling bodies on mountain slopes of the Alps, caught between Heaven
and Earth, among the cows and the villagers. This strikingly visual and
sensual film triggered a wave of understanding among dancers when it was shown in Dance on Camera Festival 1997. Marie-Louise Nespolo, Christine Kung choreographed the work and performed with Veronique Ferrero, Roberto Molo, Mikel Aristegui, Antonio Bull.

CONTRECOUPS
Pascal Magnin, Switzerland, 1998; 23m
Choreographer Guilherme Botelho adapted this urban ballet for the screen
in which two men and a woman battle with their inner demons.

CARGO
Kelly Hargraves, USA, 2007; 4m
One man’s pit stop on the road of life, where he pauses to rest and
contemplate whether to continue the journey. Sometimes, dark, sometimes
funny and always sexy, as performer Joe Jurd fills the interior of a 1969
Buick Skylark with his physical and emotional self. Introduced by Kelly
Hargraves, the creator of First Run Features DVD compilation of shorts

BOY
Rosemary Lee, Peter Anderson, UK, 1994; 6m
Considered a dance film classic, this solo turns an ordinary boy into a
superhero, as he moves with stealth and grace through a dramatic coastal
landscape, responding to this empty universe, manipulating it and
conjuring up his own imaginary world.

MOTION CONTROL
Liz Aggiss/Billy Cowie, UK, 2002; 8m
A brilliant spoof by a heralded team from Brighton. "Motion Control is a stunner!"- Toronto Globe and Mail

Program 8
(Fri Jan 4: 8:30pm; repeats Fri Jan 11: 6:15pm)
MORNING HERD
Rick Harvie, New Zealand, 2007; 7.25m
A comic insight into the battle of a farmer wrestling with the confinement
of his animals in his yards. Introduced by producer Adam Hayward.

DESCENT
Noemie Lafrance, USA, 2003; 5m
The Canadian born dancer made quite a sensation with her site-specific
installation with twelve women positioned on each floor of a twelve story
stairwell in the NYC courthouse "The Clocktower." Introduced by the director

APROP
Aitor Echeverria, Spain, 2007; 6m
Sleep interrupted by the brush of a familiar touch. The sigh of that voice
inviting you to play. The most everyday gestures become, at close range,
an extraordinary dance.

FOLIES D'ESPAGNE
Philip Buiser, USA, 2007; 7m
A mysterious woman appears at court where manner and reputation are
essential for survival. She breaks all the rules publicly and is
ultimately put back in her place as a subject of the court. This work
contrasts the formality of the Baroque aesthetic with contemporary issues
of sexuality andclass. Created in collaboration with dancer/choreographer
Austin McCormick, winner of DFA's Young Choreographers Initiative.
Introduced by choreographer and director with a brief performance on Friday, January 11th screening.

SHAKE OFF
Hans Beenhakker, The Netherlands, 2007; 9m
Prince Credell solos in this HD recorded dance film in one continous shot.
The camera follows an exceptional dancer as he moves magically through different times and spaces. The athleticism and bold surprises lure the viewer into a dynamic world which teeters between the impossible and the real. The dancer can’t or won’t stop dancing till he finds his goal. Best Artist Performance Award at Golden Lion International Film Festival, Swaziland South Africa. Now playing twice a day before 'Tussenstand' by Mijke de Jong in theatres in The Netherlands Introduced by the director and Prince Credell on Jan 11

THE INN OF FLOATING IMAGERY
Kathy Rose, USA, 2007; 8m
This piece represents a kind of autobiographical vision. I use myself to
create all the figures, sometimes employing masks from the Noh theater to
vary my persona. A sea of richly colored figures floating and flying are
accompanied by eerie sounds. The animated figures are constructed in the
manner of puppetry and collage. Introduced by the director.

CAR MEN
Boris Paval Conem and Jiri Kylian, The Netherlands, 2006; 28m
Sabina Kupferberg, Gioconda Barburo, Donald Krugel, Karel Hrusko make a
playful takeoff of the famous opera into a metaphor for time, speed,
stillness, movement, youth and age, while making a salute to the slapstick
silent film era. Czech born choreographer Jirí Kylián and director Boris
Paval Conen made this black-and-white film in a coalmine in the Czech
Republic. Dutch composer Han Otten arranged Bizet’s music and added extra
music specially composed for the film. The key prop in the film is a
‘scrap car’ reminiscent of the futurist Czech Tatra of the 1930s.

Program 9
(Sat Jan 5: 4pm; repeats Sun Jan 6: 8:30pm)
DIVA
Liz Aggiss, UK, 2007; 3.50m
A jaded dance diva processes up the red carpet. Craving the attention she
deserves, she performs a magnificent reconstruction from 1927 of the
little known work Largo. Since nobody gives a fig she blows a dance
raspberry and performs an impromptu rendition of Ranki Panki circa 2007.
DIVA is where fact and fiction collide, archive and reportage rupture.

THE BENTFOOTES
Todd Alcott and Kriota Willberg, USA, 2007; 75m
Fearlessly and ever-steady, the devoted lover of a fictitious
every-choreographer, Susan Bentfoote (1966-2005). takes us on a wide-eyed,
enthusiastic, exasperating journey of discovery into a forgotten tributary
in the river of American dance culture. In the process, the lover slowly
evolves into becoming a producer of American Modern Dance. The A
'mockumentary' melange of Spinal Tap and Ken Burns, The Bentfootes
tongue-in-explores the American dancer's aesthetic from post-revolutionary
times to the present. Introduced by the directors

INEARTHIA
Simon Halbedo, Nazario Branca, Maren Sandmann, Switzerland, 2006; 2:15m
A creative attempt to spin the Earth.

NIU NIU's STORY
Mariel McEwan, USA, 2007; 6.22m
Dance, animation, and humor reveal the training and career of a young
Chinese girl, Jia Wu, who was born to dance.

SCRAP LIFE
Su-En, Sweden, 2006; 8.30m
An homage to the art of recycling set at a scrap yard.

Program 10
(Sat Jan 5: 6:15pm; repeats Fri Jan 11: 1pm)
PAVILLON NOIR
Pierre Coulibeuf, France, 2006; 24m
Pierre Coulibeuf adapts contemporary artistic universes. His films invent
a marginal language, are critical of established forms and question the
ways of presentation. Pavillion Noir highlights the virtual relations
between the choreography of Angelin Prejlocaj, the architecture, the urban space and the landscape.

BALKAN BAROQUE
Pierre Coulibeuf, France, 1999; 63m
Balkan Baroque is not a documentary on Marina Abramovic, nor a film to promote her performances, but rather a cinematic and artistic work by Pierre Coulibeuf, autonomous. It's a wonderful portrait of this highly unusual artist but it's the vision of Coulibeuf, the vision of an artist. Balkan Baroque is fiction.

LE DEMON DU PASSAGE
Pierre Coulibeuf, France, 1995; 14m
Landscapes in which characters appear, disappear and reappear, seemingly trying to make a connection with one another but always in transition, here and elsewhere, obsessing about love, betrayal, seeking answers. The confrontation is always between a fixed image and a moving on-- a fiction inspired by the photography of Jean-Luc Moulene, as other films have been collaborations with contemporary painters and other visual artists.

Program 11
(Sat Jan 5 8:30pm)
UNDERGROUND DANCE MASTERS: Final History of a Forgotten Era
Thomas Guzman-Sanchez, USA, 2007; 144m
A tour de force exploration of the origin, evolution, history and the
creators of the Urban Dance forms of Boogaloo, locking, Popping, Roboting,
Rocking and B'boying, a previously unknown part of American Pop history.
Introduced by the director

Program 12
(Sun Jan 6 3:30pm; repeats Fri Jan 11; 4pm)
LA VIE EST BELLE
Tristan Duhamel, France, 2004; 3.13m
A character of street-art painted by Jérôme Mesnager is dancing and
running on the walls of Paris, animated by Tristan Duhamel.

INSIDE THE CIRCLE
Marcy Garriott, USA, 2007; 102m
Capturing the raw power of a grassroots hip-hop movement, INSIDE THE
CIRCLE tells the story of two talented b-boys, Josh and Omar, former best friends who become rivals when they join competing dance crews. Omar rises to international renown, while Josh tangles with the law. The “B'Boy City” competitive events thrown by visionary street dancer Romeo Navarro serve as emotional milestones in their journey to adulthood. As Romeo aptly observes,“If you can hold yourself down in battle, you can hold yourself down in life.” introduced by the director . B'boys Romeo Navarro, Josh Ayers and Omar Davila will join her for the Q&A on 1/6.

Program 13
(Fri Jan 11: 8:30pm; repeats Fri Jan 18: 8:30pm)
WATER FLOWING TOGETHER
Gwendolen Cates, USA, 2007; 54m
This splendid documentary is a compelling cinematic portrait of former NYCB Principal Dancer Jock Soto. Exploring both his Navajo Indian and Puerto Rican roots, as well as his extraordinary career as one of the ballet world's most gifted and celebrated dancers, this is a candid portrayal of an artist and a man. Introduced by the director and Jock Soto.

Program 14
(Fri Jan 18: 6:15pm)
In collaboration with Video Scanners, Dance on Camera presents Armond White, and his new look at how pop video artists preserve the dance tradition while creating new ways of moving, grooving and art-makin. This program traces dance--back to the future--fround soundstage to the street. From era defining movements of Michael Jackson to Michael Jordan, Madonna and others, White surveys how Hollywood musical choreographers inspired new generations of disciplined and eye-dazzling pop dance and shows how these artists use dance for powerful personal expression.

Kinetic Cinema
January 7th, 7:30pm
Curated by Anna Brady Nuse
Collective:Unconscious
279 Church Street (between White & Franklin Sts.)
www.weird.org

FEIST
Patrick Daughters, USA, 2007, 3:14
Noemi LaFrance worked with 45 dancers to create a series of tunnels, sideways and shapes for a music video.

BLUE
Elif Isikozlu, Canada, 2006,3m
There is a moment when you have neither left the place you're in nor entered the one you're going to. It is the moment just before you play your first note, just before you walk out on stage, just before you tell someone you don't love them anymore. Balanced on the brink, "betwixt and between", BLUE takes place within this moment, within the threshold between silence and sound.

RAVEN STUDY
Charlotte Griffin, USA, 2007, 4:30m
Animated images bookend this abstract fusion of dance and new music capturing the spirit of the Raven within a sleek cinematic canvas. This film was a collaborative effort between students of dance, film, fine art, theatre, and music at the University of Texas at Austin.

ANIMALZ
Sergio Cruz, England, 2006, 3m
Animalz takes the urban B-Boy skills of Brighton and Hove’s B3 Boys into the city’s surrounding natural landscapes. Co-choreographed by Strictly Dance Fever’s JP Omari, the sixteen 8-14 year-old dancers were encouraged to bring out the animal in themselves in their performances.

PANORAMA ROMA
Anna de Manincor, Italy, 2005, 12m
Panorama_Roma is an original crossing of visal arts and cinema experimentations (starting from the earliest panoramas by Lumière, Edison, Alber Khan). Piazza del Popolo in Rome has been chosen as a perfect example of imperfect symmetry and as a pedestrian junction of employees, clerks, tourists, artists and priests. In this naturally elliptic set the camera, as if it were a watch, completes a 360° round in 60 minutes. This video tries to find an extra-ordinary flux of time: the shootings have been compressed 20 times to obtain one hour visible in three minutes. Among unaware passer-bys, the camera discovers little by little strange narcoleptic beings who live, move, watch, and sleep in the architecture and launch encoded signals to the spectator. Performers act in a parallel temporal landscape in the condition of permanence. This flux is filled by visions and forewarnings: others possible lives appear.

PLANT
Olive Bieringa, USA, 2007, 10m
Aa visceral, painterly and sometimes humorous hallucination amidst the ruins of an abandoned bomb factory in Minnesota. The music consists of a bullet rolling across broken cement, three men engage in acts of quiet violence and noisy interaction.

NOT ABOUT IRAQ
David Soll, USA, 2007, 12m
"Not About Iraq" questions the relationship between words and experience, government rhetoric and reality. Can dance be a force for social change? Seeking to reconcile civic and artistic engagement, Victoria Marks explores how dance can conjure meaning and action through metaphoric interpretation.

Kinetic Cinema is part of The Collective for Loving Cinema Series, a weekly themed-film series curated by Anna Brady Nuse, Stephen Kent Jussick, Matt Kohn and MM Serra and presented by Collective: Unconscious. Each week of the month has a specific theme: Week 1 - Kinetic Cinema (Dance on Film), Week 2 - Experimental Queer Film (MIX @ C:U), Week 3 - Speakeasy Cinema (a mystery film with post screening talk back with various film luminaries!) and Week 4 - Jewels and Gems (the best of the Filmmakers Co-Op) . The Collective for Loving Cinema Series is supported, in part, by the New York State Council on the Arts and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs.

Picturing Dance in Three, Sometimes Four, Dimensions

Multimedia artist Gerald Marks presents an evening of Stereoscopic 3-D projections of or related to dance. This digital 3-D slideshow begins with historical examples some of the earliest 3-D photography of dance; hand tinted views of a ballet company performing in Paris during the 1860s and Victorian era views of twin ballerinas. There will be very early images of African dance, taken from glass plates made during the Museum of Natural History's first major expedition into the Congo. All genres of dance will be included. Sally Rand's scandalous Bubble Dance will represent the 1930s. The 1950s will be very well represented with amazing stereoscopic tourist photos of performances in exotic locales and with stills from a great movie musical. There will be rare photos of Chasidic Dance. The historic images lead up to the projected 3-D set Marks created for the ballet The Bell Witch with the Nashville Ballet, featuring Martine vanHamel as a flying ghost that sails out over the stage. Finally, there will be Marks' own photography of dance companies now performing around New York, as well as movement artists exploring the links between dance, nature, science, and perception. High quality 3-D glasses will be provided for your viewing experience.

Gerald Marks is an artist working along the border of art and science, specializing in stereoscopic 3-D. He may be best known for the 3-D videos he directed for The Rolling Stones during their Steel Wheels tour. He has taught at The Cooper Union, The New School and the School of Visual Arts, where he currently teaches Stereoscopic 3-D as part of the MFA program in Computer Art. He was a Visiting Scholar at the MIT Media Lab, where he worked in computer-generated holography. His Professor Pulfrich's Universe installations, featuring dancing sculptures casting 3-D shadows, are popular features in museums all over the world, including San Francisco's Exploratorium, The N. Y. Hall of Science, and Sony ExploraScience in Beijing & Tokyo. He has done 3-D consulting, lecturing & design for scientific purposes for The American Museum of Natural History, the National Institutes of Health, and Discover Magazine. He has designed award winning projections and sets at the Public Theater, SOHO Rep, Kaatsbaan International Dance Center and the Nashville Ballet.
