This Black (2017)

Dir. Cameron Thompkins
 Chor. Cameron Thompkins and Shoey Sun

Synopsis: Rooted in the physical and psychological struggles that come from not being able to safely express the range of human emotion without triggering a stereotype. The film explores expectations of violence from both outside and within, as well as the limitations of mainstream black masculinity.

In the Castle of My Skin (2015)

Dir. Lebogang Rasethaba 
Chor. Jarrel Mathebula

Synopsis: A group of South African Pantsula dancers are directed by Sons of Kemet.

He Who Dances on Wood (2017)

Dir. Jessica Beshir

Synopsis: Every day Fred Nelson carries a weathered board into Prospect Park. He places it on the ground in a tunnel beneath a pedestrian bridge, laces up his tap shoes and begins to dance. He Who Dances on Wood depicts the simple grace of Fred’s late-in-life passion for dance as the embodiment of a lifetime of spiritual growth and captures the hard-won wisdom that directs his every step.


Dir. Tobi Aremu 
Chor. Dionna PridGeon

Synopsis: Two men engage in a poetic, abstract, and physical exploration of black masculinity through contemporary dance and archival audio.

Elephant (2017)

Dir. Connie Chavez 
Chor. Keomi Tarver

The is a film adaption of a poem written by Nuyorican poet Elisabet Velasquez, performed by dancer and choreographer Keomi Tarver, body paint by Alicia Cobb, and produced by Wendy Angulo.

Synopsis: Elephant is a dance on film produced entirely by women of color against street harassment, and it is the collective effort of a group of interdisciplinary artists from New York City, who came together to highlight the importance of looking at street harassment from a lens of reclamation of power.

Hell You Talmbout (2016)

Dir. Tyler Rabinowitz, Denzel Boyd, and Joseph Webb
Chor. Shakiah Danielson

Synopsis: North Western Tap from Seattle declares through tap that the list of lives lost to police brutality ends today. Over ten years ago, Melba Ayco founded Northwest Tap Connection, a social justice oriented dance studio intentionally placed in the most dangerous part of Seattle so that it could serve as a hub and refuge for youth in the area. In the wake of the killings of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile, the film directors came across a Facebook Live video of the students of Northwest Tap dancing in the streets in protest. With the support of the National YoungArts Transformations film project, they traveled across the country to place the voice of Northwest Tap on a cinematic platform.

Total Length of Program: 33:00 min

Screening followed by Q&A with Moving Body-Moving Image director Gabri Christa, Third Horizon director Jason Fitzroy Jeffers, and audience.
