FEATURED FILMS

Vamos Fazer de Conta...("let's pretend") 

Run time: 9:08

Based on the work of director Lars Von Trier, known for his uncomfortable cinema and the book “women must cry… Or unite against war” by writer Virginia Wolf, “Vamos fazer de conta…” was a provocation for young artists to delve into their deepest discomforts, creating a situation of reflection, and through the body to bring such experiences to the sidelines. Everything is together, bodies acting simultaneously with each other, bodies dialoguing for the whole. An invitation to highlight individuality and strengthen the idea of a collective. Directed by Bernardo Gaspirini, Choreography and Artistic Direction by Elton De Souza. 

SOLE

Run time: 6:27

SOLE is a short Dance Film exploring themes of individual autonomy, coexistence within a group, celebration of individuality within a group. Written, Directed and Edited by Irina Khokhlov. 

Screendance

Run time: 10:52

“Screendance” uses appropriated archival footage to examine the cinematic conventions found across decades of dance filmmaking. Moving parts and working bodies are intertwined as this dance film explores the timeless, transcendent duet between the camera and the dancer. Directed, edited, and produced by Ruby Dietz. Full credits (including sourced archival material) available here

STILL

Run time: 5:20

To translate the mood of the Abstract Expressionists into movement draws parallels with contemporary dance, a theme explored by director and choreographer Akira Uchida in dance short, STILL. Shot across the nine galleries of the Clyfford Still Museum in Denver’s Golden Triangle Creative District, STILL channels expressive forms through dance, against the backdrop of one of the world’s most intact public collections of any major artist. Directed by Akira Uchida.

Once We Were Strangers

Run time: 8:19

A film of connection and cycles, choreographed and directed by Kyle Livsey.
