Description

Runner Up: Audience Award DOC NYC 2020

WORLD PREMIERE | Beginning in 1980s New York City, this film chronicles the love story between dancers Bill T. Jones and Arnie Zane, the diverse dance company they founded, and the painful devastation of AIDS on the arts community, as told through the company's signature performance piece D-Man in the Waters. Following a millennial dance troupe’s efforts to re-interpret the piece for their generation, directors Rosalynde LeBlanc and Tom Hurwitz offer an engrossing examination of dance, love, and loss—and the power of art to move through pain.

Included with the screening ticket is an exclusive pre-recorded Q&A with Rosalynde LeBlanc (Co-Director), Tom Hurwitz (Co-Director/Cinematographer), Bill T. Jones (Subject), immediately following the film.
