2019 marks the centenary of legendary American choreographer Merce Cunningham. This poetic film traces Merce’s artistic evolution over three decades of risk and discovery (1944–1972), from his early years as a struggling dancer in postwar New York to his emergence as one of the most visionary and influential choreographers worldwide. The 3D technology weaves together Merce's philosophies and stories, creating a visceral journey into the choreographer's world.
“What Kovgan's utterly transporting film does, through a thoughtful and dynamic combination of curated material and new performances, is radiate the rapturous power of dance” - The Hollywood Reporter
“This is a good time to remember that nonfiction films can be theatrical experiences that demand to be seen on the largest screen possible.” -Variety
