CUNNINGHAM - Alla Kovgan
2020 MFA in Film
CUNNINGHAM is a 3D cinematic experience about legendary American choreographer Merce Cunningham, orchestrated through his iconic works and performed by the last generation of his dancers. This poetic film tells a story of Merce's becoming Merce and traces his artistic adventures over three decades of risk and discovery (1944-1972). Integrating live action, archival, animation, and graphics allows the viewers to "step inside" the dance, creating a visceral journey into the choreographer's world.
