Danced Reality of Black America

By Lucy Fandel

 

This eloquent and bright dance film directed by Jon Boogz, danced by Boogz and Lil Buck and painted by Alexa Meade brings the pain of police shootings of young black men in the United States and the alienation and frustration of the African-American community into sharp focus. The film brings together artists from visual arts and film with movement choreographed in collaboration with Alec Clawson and music by Toronto-born WondaGurl. The result is a call to compassion and call to action that resonates clearly and loudly in light of the Black Lives Matter movement and the seemingly endless news cycles filled with violence against racial minorities in the United States and elsewhere.
