The Dance on Camera Festival

Torn between seeing a cool new film or enjoying a night of modern dance? The Dance on Camera Festival, hosted by Freneticore, has your ticket. The eclectic series of films runs the gamut from micro-minis to half-hour movies.

Program 2 features the classic Boy, a six-minute short by Rosemary Lee and Peter Anderson that follows a child as he wanders through a striking coastline, imagining himself in another world, and Here After, a chronicle of the devastating effects of infanticide on a community.
