This immersive 3D documentary traces the life of modern dance pioneer Merce Cunningham. With never-before-seen archival footage, the film chronicles
Cunningham’s artistic evolutions and formative relationships—most notably with musician John Cage—along with imaginative restagings of his iconic works. The result is a visceral experience of his cutting-edge choreography and a captivating portrait of a man who remained relentlessly committed to innovation throughout his life.
“What Kovgan’s utterly transporting film does, through a thoughtful and dynamic combination of curated material and new performances, is radiate the rapturous power of dance. ”
