My Paths Through Dance

user
Director: Daniel G. Cabrero.
Paris, 1926: the precocious skill and talent for dance of 6 yearold Spanish-emigrate Emma’s leads her to perform in front of Madame Gontcharowa, a former dancer of the Ballets Ruses and current teacher of Classical Dance at the well-known Théâtre du Châtelet. Madame Gontcharowa harnesses Emma’s raw talent helping her into the Petite Etoile du Châtelet but, at her artistic childhood’s pinnacle, and with all chances to become a great Classical dancer, Emma’s mother withdraws her from the theatre - shattering her dreams of becoming a professional dance-star. My Paths Through Dance is a coming-of-age, rags to artistic riches story which follows Emma’s journey to become the unique Spanish dancer Mariemma, and later the creator of the “Mariemma – Ballet de España”, the greatest Spanish Ballet ever. Mariemma’s paths through dance helped launching the careers of internationally renowned artists such as Antonio Canales, Enrique Morente, Elvira Andrés, Elio Berhanyer, Aída Gómez, Joaquín Cortés and Lola Greco amongst many others. All of her protégées appear in the film recounting their experiences alongside Mariemma and describe her invaluable contributions to dance, Spanish culture and history.

12th Annual EROS Film Festival Sends a Message: It Gets BetterAs our nation cries out in grief and disbelief at the recent tragedies surrounding gay youth in America, the question that begs an urgent answer is: how do we prevent this from happening again and again? The answer is simple: support, support, support. Support takes many forms – from reaching out on a personal level to gay and lesbian youth in our lives to mentoring an at risk youth we’ve never met to linking ourselves and othe...

The Loss Of Innocence At TIFF

user
  Yesterday was September 11th, and again I find myself in the city of Toronto, as I did in 2001......when the planes crashed, the towers fell, the buildings burned and America lost its innocence. It was a very strange place to be back then, in the midst of covering a film festival, while one's city was in chaos. For those of us from New York, there was a shared concern about the loss of loved ones, the security of our friends and family and the frustrations of not being able to place p...

Ken Russell: Love Or Hate But Can't Ignore

user
  There are a few film directors whose appeal splits people right down the middle. Some hate the work and some are devoted groupies. However, if the response to a particular director bridges the entire spectrum, then it is all the proof needed that this talented film artist's sensibility cannot be ignored. For myself, always a sucker for the sweeping operatic gesture in film, I find myself to be a disciple of the British director Ken Russell. Russell did not think small in hi...

The last week went by in a New York minute: ran between the NY Human Rights Film Festival, the Brooklyn International Film Festival and the NY Women in Film and Television Feature Film Financing conference. Good to know I must have looked like a New Yorker too, as everyone kept asking me for directions & commenting on how much they liked my clothes and loved my shoes. A drumming troupe on the subway who made my heels move even offered me a job as a samba dancer too. Enjoyed the NY sub...
