Following an opening gala honoring former Voice photog Lois Greenfield, a cornucopia of new and historic dance films overflows at this 43rd opening night of the Dance on Camera Festival featuring Meredith Monk’s Girlchild Diary, plus a Q&A with Monk and performer Lanny Harrison. The festival closes with Richard Raymond’s Desert Dancer, a protest film set in 2009 Iran and choreographed by Akram Khan. In between, catch Born to Fly, Catherine Gund’s tribute to Elizabeth Streb; Capturing Grace, David Iverson’s moving record of dancers with Parkinson’s disease at the Mark Morris studio; a digital restoration of Bob Fosse’s 1979 All That Jazz; and films from Norway, Denmark, Israel, Japan, France, the U.K., and the U.S.A. After tonight’s gala at the Bow Tie Chelsea Cinema on West 23rd Street, screenings take place at Lincoln Center through February 3.
