Sugarfoote Productions and The UNC Greensboro School of Dance present the 7th annual Greensboro Dance Film Festival with a special screening of Uprooted: The Journey of Jazz Dance at the UNC Greensboro Auditorium on Friday, October 29th at 4:30 pm.
UPROOTED is a ground-breaking documentary that traces the roots of jazz dance from Africa to its evolution as a contemporary genre. Whilst exploring and commenting on its political and social influences, the film engenders an honest conversation about jazz dance, addressing topics such as appropriation, racism, socialism, and sexism. It is a story of triumph over adversity, oppression, and privilege as well as a celebration.
Following the screening, there is a talkback featuring the makers of the film: Director Khadifa Wong, Producer Lisa Donmall-Reeves and Cinematographer Matt Simpkins, who are traveling to the Triad for the event.
The event is free and open to the public, and registration is required. Visit bit.ly/uprootedscreening to reserve your seat!
