Opening Night: International Shorts I

The festival opens with a selection of dynamic international shorts, drawn from an exciting new crop of films that push the art form forward, redefining what is possible within the quickly evolving relationship between dance and the camera. Films include Take Your Time, by Bay Area artists Natasha Adorlee Johnson (ODC/Dance, Concept 04), and filmmaker Max Sachar (Pixar), with their music video for the band Lender, which was choreographed backward and filmed in a single shot.
