“Let’s Get the Rhythm” Screening and Q&A at the Film Society of Lincoln Center
January 30, 2015 @ 3:15 PM - 5:00 PM| $14.00
The Dance on Camera festival at the Film Society of Lincoln Center will present Let’s Get the Rhythm: the Life and Times of Miss Mary Mack along with a Q&A with the director, Irene Chagall.
Directed by Irene Chagall and coproduced by City Lore and Steve Zeitlin, the film invites the viewer to explore the history of hand-clapping games on playgrounds around the world. Through wars and migrations, across language barriers and oceans, young girls connect with each other through thousands of variants-ancient as they are global-the film chronicles these rhythmic and recreational practices. Guided by three eight-year-olds from diverse cultural backgrounds in the New York area, it is a charming and beautiful survey with universal insight.
