Chesapeake Film Festival
Moving Stories for Free
at the Talbot County Free Library
The riveting, award-winning documentary Moving Stories screens Saturday, May 11 at 3 p.m. at the Talbot County Free Library, 100 W. Dover St., Easton, MD.
Moving Stories (watch the trailer) follows Battery Dance’s troupe in India, Romania, Korea, and Iraq as the professional dancers teach tools of choreography to at-risk youth through the Dancing to Connect program. The film captures the struggle, frustration, determination, and transformation of both teachers and students, who have just one week to prepare for a final performance.
The film, by Cornelia Ravenal, Mikael Södersten, Rob Fruchtman, and Wendy Sax, won the Best Documentary Award at the Chesapeake Film Festival in 2018. It premiered at the New York Museum of Modern Art last year.
