Saturday July 11
12:15 pm
Modern Auditorium/ admission free

Catch the local premieres of short films from the 2015 Dance On Camera festival of New York City.  This 35-minute program features four family-friendly films:

Escualo (Martin & Facundo Lombard, USA, 2014; 4:09) - A "dance scene" set to music by Astor Piazzolla and performed by the Lombard Twins.

Det Skal Danses Vaek (Maia Elisabeth Sorensen, Denmark, 2014; 4:44) - A high-school boy's infatuation with dance erupts into a full-scale "performance" in which his classmates become a chorus of movers who catch the fever.

Ghost Line (Shona Masarin & Cori Olinghouse, USA, 2013, 15:14) - An experimental film merging the rhythmic and comedic timings of silent film and vaudeville with the absurdist impulses of Dada and Surrealism in a kinetic spectacle of light and shadow.

Vanishing Points (Marites Carino, Canada, 2014; 8:59) - Like two molecules unknowingly affecting each other in space and briefly crossing paths, conceptual hip-hop dancers collide and share fleeting moments of intimate synchronicity on the streets of Montreal.
