SEATTLE INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL
MAY 17-JUNE 10

JOFFREY: MAVERICKS OF AMERICAN DANCE AT NORTHWEST FILM FORUM
Northwest Film Forum (1515 12th Ave.) presents the new feature length documentary, Joffrey: Mavericks of American Dance, from Friday, June 1-Thursday, June 7, at 7 p.m. and 9 p.m. The 2012 film chronicles the legendary Joffrey Ballet, founded by Seattle native Robert Joffrey, from its humble beginnings touring the country in a borrowed station wagon to becoming one of the world's most exciting and prominent ballet companies. Narrated by Tony and Emmy award winner Mandy Patinkin, the documentary takes a look at this groundbreaking American cultural treasure. Joffrey: Mavericks of American Dance is the first film to tell the story of how the Joffrey Ballet revolutionized American ballet by daringly combining modern dance with traditional ballet at a time when it was not routinely accepted. The Company broke other barriers, too, by accepting and cultivating a diverse group of talented dancers regardless of race and body type, by resurrecting nearly lost early 20th Century masterpieces, and by commissioning daring new works by cutting edge choreographers. Tickets: $10.
