There's much to experience in the Dance Category, nearly four hours of screening. Our judge Beth Soll deliberated and viewed and re-viewed all of them. These are her final choices, with comments. Enjoy them, and all the Official Selections, as they are an extraordinary group of dance-based films.
Radix II --
"For the eloquent beauty of the dancing, the evocative melancholy mood, the setting, the colors, the poem."
RADIX, conceived and directed by Cristiano Leone, is an audio-visual project that promotes a dialogue between contemporary creation and historical heritage. Filmed in Italy.
The Wind and the Kite –
"for its imaginative treatment of a traditional theme. The intimate camera work, which contributed to the effectiveness of the dancing and the choreographic exploration of movement. For the extraordinary light."
"for youthful exuberance and free playful use of cinematic editing."
"for the drama and beauty of the photography/filming and aerial choreography and performance in the canyon."
"for its originality and thoughtfulness. For the experimental multimedia effects."
"for the irresistible, saturated colors, the sense of a slightly formal, not-quite-real, but intense passion, and the transformation of a domestic setting into an abstract, expressive environment."
Squib:When All Of This Is Over
-- for UK Poet, Anthony Anaxagorou and One6th Animation Studio's collaborative work to create a poem-based film in response to lockdown. Superb cinematic stop-motion film artistically delves into the emotion of Anthony's poem (Squib). It highlights claustrophobic lockdowns with a hopeful look towards the future. Its use of multiple animation elements, puppets and enhanced movement to capture the essences of the poem.
--for the extensive development of a unique story-line that uses traditional animation techniques and graphics with stop-motion precision. Jonathan Riles directs, produces, writes and animates his student thesis, backed-up by a crew of many to produce this epic animation.
--for the quality of both the poem by Bill Ratner, and animation by Micah Chambers-Goldberg; they join to build a unique presentation in verse and music of an actual event on the railroad. A railway switchman creates a train incident, yet the blame goes to a Native American, who is innocent, yet suffers injuries at the hands of his accuser.
--For the clever and artistic use of puppetry as a basis for the animation of a sweet and simple tale. Alex and Olmsted is an is an internationally acclaimed puppet theater company that crosses barriers in the arts to produce extraordinary work.
