NY Export: Opus Jazz One year after West Side Story triumphed on Broadway, legendary choreographer Jerome Robbins premiered Opus Jazz, a ‘ballet in sneakers’ that captured the joy of being young and alive in the Big Apple. Filmed in gorgeous 35mm widescreen, NY Export: Opus Jazz features dancers from the New York City Ballet in a pulsating performance of the piece shot in unfamiliar outdoor locations around the city. A wonderful companion piece to the GFF screening of West Side Story and a must for dance lovers. preceded by
One Thousand Pictures Robert F Kennedy’s assassination in June 1968 felt like a fatal blow to the dreams of countless Americans. Thousands lined the rail tracks to pay their respects when his body was transported from New York to Washington. Magnum photographer Paul Fusco captured indelible images of the grief and desolation on their faces. One Thousand Pictures combines stunning archive footage and fresh interviews with some of the faces in the crowd to create a powerful, deeply moving account of a divided America and the death of hope.
