Event Details

Chesapeake Film Festival
Presents
Moving Stories for Free
at the Talbot County Free Library (Easton)

Moving Stories (watch the trailer) follows Battery Dance’s troupe in India, Romania, Korea, and Iraq as the professional dancers teach tools of choreography to at-risk youth through the Dancing to Connect program. The film captures the struggle, frustration, determination, and transformation of both teachers and students, who have just one week to prepare for a final performance.

The film, by Cornelia Ravenal, Mikael Södersten, Rob Fruchtman, and Wendy Sax, won the Best Documentary Award at the Chesapeake Film Festival in 2018. It premiered at the New York Museum of Modern Art last year.

Two of the filmmakers, Cornelia Ravenal and Mikael Södersten, will participate in a Q&A and a short reception in the Frederick Douglass Room following the screening. The event is free, but seating is limited.

It is the mission of the Chesapeake Film Festival to entertain, enrich and inspire by bringing the finest in narrative, documentary and short film to the Chesapeake Bay community.  The films we showcase are broadly focused to illuminate both the diversity and universality of the human condition.  We believe that films can affect positive change and through this medium individuals and communities can gain a greater understanding of themselves and the world.  We envision a festival that stimulates, educates and empowers.
