Runner Up: Audience Award DOC NYC 2020 THIS FILM IS SOLD OUT. For more than 500 performances, Derek DelGaudio left New York City audiences moved and astonished by his one-man show combining the art of illusion and storytelling....
An unconventional dance documentary featuring the brazen and entirely nude choreography of Thierry Smits’s new dance, Anima Ardens. Aleksandr M. Vinogradov’s film follows 11 men who audition, rehearse, and perform this challenging piece exploring masculinity, power, and voyeurism. With charged performances, and so much skin on display, the proceedings could easily veer into eroticism; instead, this masterfully constructed film grapples with the complexity of artistic collaboration while deconstructing rote concepts of sexuality.
Included with the screening ticket is an exclusive pre-recorded Q&A with Aleksandr M. Vinogradov (Director), Valentin Braun & Thierry Smits (Subjects), immediately following the film.
