All That Jazz 01Dance on Film,” our annual series celebrating (what else?) dance, kicks off with a bang on October 24 at 7:15….an eye-popping new 4K DCP restoration (roughly 4 times the resolution of today’s more commonly used 2K for cinema) of All That Jazz, Bob Fosse’s semi-autobiographical 1979 musical that was nominated for 9 Oscars.  Believe it or not, this new version was 15 years in the making.

The film will be introduced by Glenn Berger, a psychotherapist and former recording engineer who worked closely with Fosse.

And what would opening night be without an after-party?  Please join us in the Media Arts Lab for a light reception following the screening.

We are also happy to welcome back Peter Pucci, 9 year veteran of the Pilobolus Dance Theatre and currently Artist-in-Residence at Manhattanville College, as host of 3 Q&A’s in the series.
