BODIES IN MOTION
Now in its 37th year, the Dance on Camera Festival, presented by the Film Society of Lincoln Center and Dance Films Association, zooms in on the cinematic contributions of choreographers and dancers and their unique collaborations with filmmakers, ranging from silent classics to cutting-edge indies for a total of 40 works. The January 11 lineup includes On the Short Side, a program of 11 bold new works by indie filmmakers (a highlight being Manuelle Labor, French experimental filmmaker Marie Losiers collaboration with Guy Maddin, introduced by Losier); the silent 1918 film The Blue Bird, with live piano accompaniment by Ben Model; and VSPRS Show and Tell, directed by iconoclastic filmmaker Sophie Fiennes (The Perverts Guide to Cinema), with moves by pioneering Belgian choreographer Alain Platel.
