Renowned filmmaker Frederick Wiseman captured the ephemeral world of dance in three extraordinary documentaries – Ballet (1995), La Danse (2009) and Crazy Horse*(2011). See excerpts from these films and Boxing Gym (2010) followed by Wiseman and LINES Ballet’s Alonzo King, as they discuss and examine the unique relationship between dance and film and how Wiseman’s craft and art have contributed to the public’s understanding and appreciation of dance.
