(Danser le printemps à l'automne)
(France, 2013, 52 mins, HDCAM)

Twenty retirees from Marseille, aged 60 to 87 and without any dance experience, spent seven years working with choreographer Thierry Thieû Niang on a performance of Stravisnky’s The Rite of Spring. It became a hit throughout France and Denis Sneguirev and Philippe Chevallier’s delightful film shows the culmination of this extraordinary journey.

(Alba de un recuerdo)
(Colombia, 2013, 15 mins, HDCAM)

Alba, 75, a native Colombian woman whose daughter became sick and was taken away from her as a young child, now returns constantly to those memories of their time together. A beautiful and powerful documentary about loss, heartbreak and stoic existence.
