MARVELOUS MOVIE MONDAYS!!
guest curator: Jennifer Sullivan
Hi everyone! My theme for July is Dancer in the Dark — a series of emotive dance sequences that have made an impact on me and my work. From the beginning of when I first began to find my voice as a video maker, I have naturally included some kind of dance sequence in almost all of my work. There is an emotional directness in dance that I find really moving. Kicking off the 4th of July holiday week, it seemed fitting to begin with Sandra Bernhard’s dance sequence from her 1990 film “Without You I’m Nothing”. In the final scene, she unfurls herself from a giant American flag cape, and dances to Prince’s Little Red Corvette in star-spangled thong and pasties.
