Caña short film, audience reactions
FESTIVAL AUDIENCE FEEDBACK VIDEOS • 7m 25s
CANA, 14min., USA, Dance
Directed by Ana Maria Alvarez
This film is an investigation of movement within a natural landscape, of rich textures and textiles in motion, and of the mystery of ritual. It provides a window into a private world of a group of women, dancing together unselfconsciously among natural landscapes and dressed in lusciously colored textiles. Throughout the film, sugar cane is ripped, bitten, and swung about as a meditation on this indulgent substance—echoing themes of vice and virtue.
