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.

Flights

Director: Robert M. Herzog.
Based on an almost true but entirely surreal experience. In 1968, a college senior tries to finish his Harvard Law School Application, which would keep him from being draft bait, likely to fight in the Vietnam War. Fong and his roommates start making enormous paper airplanes, get stoned, set the planes on fire and launch them from a precarious roof. At the end of an intense, frenzied evening, a final decision propels Fong into an uncertain, potentially lethal future. Flights depicts the intense pressures of an era when ordinary rites of passage could have life and death consequences. It is a timely exploration of the impact of America at war, amidst a conflict between citizenship and morality.

Dawn of Darkness

Director: Maks Naporowski.
An ancient evil once threatened the lands of Aronmar, engulfing the world in darkness and nearly destroying all life. In a last effort to save their realm a group of warriors banded together to fight the Darkness. They were said to have found the source of magic, a mystical "Light" that flows through the veins of the land and gives life to all. These warriors became the powerful order known as the "Aegis of Light" and with the powers granted by the Light they were able to stop the Darkness from spreading. Peace and harmony returned to the lands and with time, like all things, the memories of the Darkness withered away. With no signs of danger or of the Aegis warriors, the stories became myths, myths became legends and the Ancient Evil was forgotten. A thousand years have now passed and the Evil has returned, spreading and destroying everything in its path. The lands of Aronmar are once again being consumed by Darkness. Two powerful warriors arrive to witness the destruction of an Elven village. Kara, an Elven warrior, who a thousand years ago used to call this burning town her home, along with a human Paladin knight, Dryden. The two may very well be the last of the powerful order of the "Aegis of Light". Can they stop this ancient evil and it’s minions as they did once before? Can the Aegis save Aronmar or will the Ancient Evil consume all on this Dawn of Darkness ...

Luminescence

Luminescence is a poetically inspired experimental film about light – as mirror, as metaphor, as self-reflection, as shadow, as heat, as the ethereal wave particles of optics and physics – and ultimately, as pure energy - shimmering, glowing and flickering.
