2019 AUDIENCE CHOICE WINNERS

 
 

"T.I.A. (This is Africa)"
Matthieu Maunier-Rossi | France

ARTIST BIO
"Matthieu Maunier-Rossi is a screenwriter and director, living and working in Paris, France. Geography and travels are at the core of all his projects. From 2014 to 2017, he wandered across the Caribbean, looking for new stories. His journey became a book (« Les îles buissonnières », Ed. Rudbeckias, 2018). After more than one year spent in Haiti working with NGOs, he went back to the island during the summer of 2018 to direct a new fiction film called « Three blades ». That movie is currently playing in festivals around the world."

FILM DESCRIPTION
Conceived, shot and recorded in 48 hours in Brazzaville (Congo). Choreographer and dancer Aïpeur Foundou, mixes contemporary dancing and traditional Congolese movements. An original poem written by Ronan Chéneau is narrated by Ella Ganga, a Congolese dancer. The dialect used at times is Lari. The river in the film is the River Congo, and Kinshasa can be spotted in the distance on the other bank..

"And So Say All of Us"
Mitchell Rose | United States

ARTIST BIO
Prior to becoming a filmmaker, Mitchell Rose was a New York-based choreographer. His company toured internationally for 15 years. Eventually he was drawn more to visual media and graduated from The American Film Institute as a Directing Fellow. Since A.F.I. his films have won 88 festival awards and are screened around the world.

The New York Times called him: "A rare and wonderful talent." The Washington Post wrote that his work was “in the tradition of Chaplin, Keaton, and Tati—funny and sad and more than the sum of both.”

FILM DESCRIPTION
52 seminal international choreographers link together on a chain love letter to dance. Featured artists include Ohad Naharin, Mark Morris, Elizabeth Streb, Bill T. Jones, Meredith Monk, William Forsythe, and Lucinda Childs. Commissioned by the Brooklyn Academy of Music in honor of Joseph V. Melillo’s 35 years of service as its executive producer.
