SHORT & FEATURE FILMS - A to Z • Documentary, Independent, Short Films
This short documentary explores the relationship dancers have with music, especially when none of the dancers can hear the music. The Gallaudet Dance Company is home to a small dance studio that pushes the meaning of dance beyond the scope of sound. This year marked a specific turning point for the program, as half the dancers are graduating, their dance company director Sue Gill-Doleac is also retiring after 44 years.
Family, community, and deaf culture are the major themes that are explored as the dancers and their director prepare for their last spring concert and life after Gallaudet.
Directed by Sarah Goolishian
