deadCenter Film Festival: Watch "Revival" Online
Filmmaker Josefina Rotman Lyons
The documentary "Revival" will be screening online at the deadCenter Film Festival from June 11 to June 21.

Synopsis: In the spring of 2017, four older choreographers, once seminal participants in the modern dance world and Broadway, started the monumental task of creating dances with a diverse group of New York City seniors, most of whom had never danced on stage before. Over a few intense months, these choreographers, including the first black artist to have won a Tony award for choreography and a 92-year old former dance partner of pioneer Martha Graham, brought to life their ideas and sparked immense joy in the senior dancers. The film documents this unlikely event and, in the process, reveals the heroic dedication and determination of the choreographers and dancers, for whom age does not impede but molds.
With George Faison, Ellen Graff, Naomi Goldberg Haas, Stuart Hodes, Chet Walker, and Marnie Thomas Wood.
