Hamptons Doc Fest: “Last Dance”
Featured speaker: Mirra Bank, Filmmaker
15 years after its debut, Mirra Bank’s documentary is as stirring and important today as when it hit the theaters. The film documents the creative collaboration between the American modern dance company, Pilobolus and the famed illustrator and writer of children’s books, Maurice Sendak. Together they create a dance-theater piece about the Holocaust. The movie captures the step-by-step improvisational process of creating a work inspired by Sendak’s personal connection to the Holocaust.
