Craneway Event is a feature length portrait of Merce Cunningham by one of Britainís most accomplished visual artists, 1998 Turner Prize nominee Tacita Dean.

Shot in the craneway of an abandoned Ford car factory overlooking San Francisco bay, Dean films the legendary choreographer rehearsing his company in the massive hanger-like space, and records the powerful beauty of the dancersí hypnotic movement shrouded in sunlight.
