A beautiful documentary about the legendary American choreographer, Merce Cunningham.

Directed by Alla Kovgan, this documentary is orchestrated through his iconic works and performed by the last generation of his dancers. The poetic film traces Merce’s artistic evolution over three decades of risk and discovery (1944–1972), from his early years as a struggling dancer in postwar New York to his emergence as one of the most visionary and influential choreographers worldwide. 3D technology weaves together Merce's philosophies and stories, creating a visceral journey through the choreographer's world.

We are delighted to welcome Alla Kovgan, Radiohead's Philip Selway, Siobhan Davies and host Alastair Macaulay for a ScreenTalk following the film.
