A feast for dance fans, this documentary explores the career of Merce Cunningham—in 3D, yet—as he transforms himself from just another struggling dancer in postwar New York City into a visionary choreographer who transforms dance as well. Beyond that, the film is a testimony to the rapturous power of dance. With never-before-seen archival material, and the talking heads of John Cage, Robert Rauschenberg, and Andy Warhol. Played the Toronto Film Festival.
