BODIES IN MOTION
Years in the making, Greg Vander Veer’s Miss Hill: Making Dance Matter (pictured at left), rich with archival footage, has its world premiere tonight at 8 at the Dance on Camera Festival. The opening night of this redoubtable festival at Walter Reade Theater appropriately takes place alongside the Juilliard School, where Martha Hill was the founding director of dance from 1952 until 1985, fighting the good fight to get the discipline recognized by the conservatory. Also on the roster, at sites all over Lincoln Center: films about Rudolf Nureyev, JoAnna Mendl Shaw with horses in Sweden, Bill T. Jones, Pina Bausch and Chantal Akerman, and many more, some of them free.
Fridays-Sundays, 8 p.m. Starts: Jan. 31. Continues through Feb. 2, 2014
