EIGHT WOMEN (2009, 29m, USA)
Eight dancers, now in their eighties, continue to dance. Beginning as suburban housewives in 1950's Connecticut, each were swayed to join a community dance ensemble later to be led by Charles Weidman and other prominent modern dancers of the time. Some were professional level dancers, others were just curious. Regardless of ability, regardless of intent, this evolving group of women created an engaging ensemble that extended past the stage, into their lives. A rendering of the intersections of motherhood, marriage, and movement, the film reflects on the delicate balance of their lives as homemakers and dancers.
