CUNNINGHAM traces Merce Cunningham's artistic evolution over three decades of risk and discovery (1944–1972), from his early years as a struggling dancer in postwar New York to his emergence as one of the world’s most visionary choreographers.

A breathtaking explosion of dance, music, and never-before-seen archival material, CUNNINGHAM is a timely tribute to one of the world’s greatest modern dance artists.

Please note that this film is presented in 2D.

"Some of the most seductive footage here isn’t the new performances of old works... but lower-resolution, 2-D archival footage, much of it rare and irreplaceable." Brian Seibert. A New York Times Critic's Pick!
