MISS HILL: MAKING DANCE MATTER
a documentary film
by Greg Vander Veer
opens Friday, January 23
at New York City's Quad Cinema
Miss Hill: Making Dance Matter reveals the little known story of Martha Hill, a visionary who fought against great odds to make contemporary and modern dance a legitimate art form in America. In a career spanning most of the 20th century, Hill became a behind the scenes leader of the field and the founding director of The Juilliard Dance Division. Stylistically weaving together over 90 years of archival footage, the film is a celebration of dance and an examination of the passion required to keep it alive.Showtimes: 1pm, 2:45pm, 4:30pm, 7pm, 9:15pm
