Screendance IV: Two Mothers

SFDFF brings two “Mothers” together in this double bill featuring two groundbreaking companies

Multidisciplinary American artist and Fulbright Scholar Samantha Shay describes her work for Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch as “a multilayered portrait of experiences, a constellation of how the personal resounds beyond human experience, yet can somehow point back to something as simple as a childhood memory.” Then fasten your seat belts for Hofesh Shechter’s directorial debut with Political Mother: The Final Cut, a wild ride of a film with an infectious rhythm that builds into a frenzied explosion of movement and expression.

Note: Hofesh Schecter’s Political Mother: The Final Cut is only available for streaming in California
