Dance on Screen:  "Horizontes" directed by Eileen Hofer

Dance on Screen Film Festival

How can the camera expand our experience of dance? In five films, we will watch together as diverse dance traditions are brought to life. Live Q+A’s with filmmakers and choreographers will reframe dance from multiple viewpoints, and bring vibrant choreography from around the world to wherever you may be.

Dance on Screen Film Festival is a special collaboration with Images Cinema. All films are free and open to the public.

Three generations of Cuban ballet dancers are portrayed in this loving, deeply observant documentary from director Eileen Hofer. Alicia Alonso’s star still radiates nationwide, encouraging an aspiring ballerina who has dedicated all her efforts to gaining admission into Alonso’s ballet company, and inspiring one of four celebrated dancers of the National Ballet. Together, they offer insight into the past, present, and future of Cuba’s national ballet. A subtle cultural portrait of Cuba emerges, with Alonso’s National Ballet a cornerstone of Castro’s revolutionary nation-building. What role do the arts play in the project of national identity? And how does the legacy of ballet live on through generations? 71 min.

There will be a post-screening of “Horizontes”  Q+A with director Eileen Hofer and dancer Theresa Ruth Howard on November 22 at 2:00 PM.
