A Ukranian dance team performs at Coney Island in this one-take, black-and-white

A melancholy ode to an endangered species set to music by Tom Waits.

SWEET IN THE MORNING: ASH
Dir. Andree Ljutica, USA, 2016, 5 min.
The dance journey to reconnect with love ones who have passed away was filmed at the Angel Orensanz Center on the Lower East Side, an ecstatic solo danced in a
cathedral-like setting by Darrell Payne and choreographed by the late Leni Wylliams to a rendition by vocal virtuoso Bobby McFerrin.

BLACK OUT
Dir. Philippe Saire, Switzerland, 2017, 17 min.
Three dancers and three towels lie in neat squares as if on a beach. The placid scene is disrupted by falling black pigment. The floor turns into a canvas and the bodies into brushes.

NIGHT DANCING
Dir. Barney Cokeliss, UK, 2016, 6 min.
Nightly, Bob sees a beautiful young woman dancing outside his window. He is transfixed and wonders if she is real. Then things get complicated.

BHAIRAVA
Dir. Marlene Millar & Philip Szporer, Canada, 2017, 14 min.
Dancer-choreographer Shantala Shivalingappa evokes the duality of the powerful deity Shiva as both destroyer and protector as she performs a symbolic dance that
combines gesture and abstract body language to a rhythmic musical score against the backdrop of the spectacular ancient ruins of a South Indian village.

LIL BUCK WITH ICONS OF MODERN ART
Dir. Andrew Margetson, UK, 2016, 4 min.
Chicago-born dancer Lil Buck takes London-based filmmaker Margetson on a light-footed tour through the halls of the Frank Gehry-designed Foundation Louis Vuitton.

DIPTYCH
Dir. Kiira Benzing, USA, 2018, 12 min.
Movement and art blend in this film about dreams, memories, painting, and the imaging of a new dance in homage to esteemed artist practitioners.

THE YELLOW ROOM*
Kitty McNamee, USA, 2017, 4:46 min.
In a series of increasing lush and intimate encounters, two dancers are forced to confront each other and themselves, exploring the expansion of identity beyond solely masculine or feminine.
