PELÍCULA – 82′ – Inglés

Screening hosted by Aimar Pérez Galí.

The only documentary to focus solely on the life and career of Yvonne Rainer. Feelings Are Facts: The Life of Yvonne Rainer, a film by Jack Walsh, tells the captivating story of one of America’s most important artists. In 1962, as a founding member of Judson Dance Theater, Rainer revolutionized modern dance by introducing everyday movements like walking and running into the dance lexicon. Abandoning choreography in the ‘70s, Rainer introduced narrative techniques into American avant-garde film, turning that genre on its head, too.

In Feelings Are Facts, we follow Rainer, now 82 and returned to choreography, as she continues to create vibrant, courageous, unpredictable dances that invite audiences to question basic assumptions about art and performance.

The film recently was awarded an honorable mention for best feature documentary at the San Francisco Dance Film Festival.
