Conceived, produced and directed by Michael J. Masucci & Kate Johnson, this memorial tribute to the astounding life of Zina Bethune- artist, pioneer and advocate for the physically challenged, is a segment of what will become a full-length documentary.of the woman.
Bethune was a child star in George Balanchine's American Ballet Theater, was a star of an NBC series as a teenager, and starred in Martin Scorsese's first feature as a young adult.
She was tragically killed, by a hit-and-run driver, while trying to save an injured animal on a roadway.
Her career was forever affected by a number of birth defects which first rendered her wheelchair-bound, then she overcame this, not only walked, but danced again, and went on to be a multimedia dance pioneer, a teacher and advocate for physically challenged youth, and an actor, dancer and producer.
