Dance Film Sundays Presents: CTRL+ALT+DANCE http://rosendaletheatre.org/2015/05/13/dance-film-sundays-presents-ctrlaltdance/ http://rosendaletheatre.org/2015/05/13/dance-film-sundays-presents-ctrlaltdance/#comments Wed, 13 May 2015 13:56:05 +0000 http://rosendaletheatre.org/?p=12251 3:00 pm | $10/$6 children | 1 hr 20 min | Comedy, Drama, Romance | Presented in collaboration with Chester and Linda Freeman of Got2Lindy Dance Studios.  Following the screening there will be a Q & A with Chester and Linda and Rosendale’s Richard Schwab.

The Lindy goes Indie at Rosendale Theatre  with the screening of “Ctrl+Alt+Dance,” a quirky, new, beautifully shot film about a laid-off software engineer who stumbles into a job as a high school dance teacher, and then follows an unlikely path to swing dancing (and, naturally, to love). Staring top-flight Lindy Hop dancers Dax Hock and Sarah Breck–seen on “Dancing With the Stars” and “Paula Adbul’s Live to Dance,” it was choreographed by world champion Lindy Hoppers Kevin St. Laurent and Jo Hoffberg.

Produced by independent film makers Brian Crone and Gex Williams, with Williams directing “Ctrl+Alt+Dance” has been delighting audiences world-wide since March and is presented in collaboration with Chester and Linda Freeman of Got2Lindy Dance Studios.  Following the screening there will be a Q & A with Chester and Linda and Rosendale’s Richard Schwab.

Film-maker Williams fell in love with Lindy Hop as a teenager taking classes in Covington, Kentucky.  In film school, he discovered a worldwide network who shared that passion.  Along with Brian Crone, his collaborator, they tapped into that network to make “Ctrl+Alt+Dance.”   It is a film that pays homage to swing dancing – specifically the Lindy Hop style popularized during the Great Depression – in its truest form.   The directors write, “This film is meant to challenge those who are complacent with their lives, encourage those who are trying to change, and give tribute to the first generation of swing dancers who bravely took action to overcome the fears of their day.”  Go to http://ctrlaltdancethemovie.com/ to see the trailer.

Dance Film Sundays, a series which started in June 2010 under the auspices of the Rosendale Theatre Collective, are held on the 2nd Sunday of every month at Rosendale Theatre.  The June 14th presentation represents the 5th Anniversary of Dance Film Sunday.

A veteran actress comes face-to-face with an uncomfortable reflection of herself when she agrees to take part in a revival of the play that launched her career 20 years earlier.
Maria Enders (Juliette Binoche) is an actress at the peak of her international career who is asked to perform in a revival of the play that made her famous twenty years earlier. Back then she played the role of Sigrid, an alluring young woman who disarms and eventually drives her boss Helena to suicide. Now she is being asked to step into the other role, that of the older Helena. She departs with her assistant (Kristen Stewart) to rehearse in Sils Maria, a remote region of the Alps. A young Hollywood starlet with a penchant for scandal (Chloë Grace Moretz) is to take on the role of Sigrid, and Maria finds herself on the other side of the mirror, face to face with an ambiguously charming woman who is, in essence, an unsettling reflection of herself.

With Q & A with film producer, director, editor Richard Barber and a performance by The Rosendale Improvement Association Marching Band & Social Club

“The Whole Gritty City” is an immersion into the world of three New Orleans school marching bands. This documentary follows kids growing up in America’s most musical city, and one of its most dangerous, as their band directors get them ready to perform in the Mardi Gras parades, and teach them to succeed and to survive. Navigating the urban minefield through moments of setback, loss, discovery, and triumph, these children and their adult leaders reveal the power and resilience of a culture.

Richard Barber (Producer, Director, Editor) has been recognized for his work as a producer and editor for television with Peabody, Emmy and Christopher awards, including the 2002 CBS documentary “9/11”. He has worked at CBS News for “Street Stories”, “48 Hours”, “Live to Tell”, “Brooklyn DA” and “Sunday Morning”.
