DOC NYC 2020
Frameline, Vancouver, Milwaukee, SF Dance, Outshine Miami
The story behind Bill T Jones and Arnie Zane’s titular performance piece on the devastation of AIDS.
The film screened as part of DOC NYC, for which our program notes read:
Beginning in 1980s New York City, this film chronicles the love story between dancers Bill T Jones and Arnie Zane, the diverse dance company they founded, and the painful devastation of AIDS on the arts community, as told through the company’s signature performance piece D-Man in the Waters. Following a millennial dance troupe’s efforts to re-interpret the piece for their generation, directors Rosalynde LeBlanc and Tom Hurwitz offer an engrossing examination of dance, love, and loss—and the power of art to move through pain.
