A documentary look at the artistic evolution of revolutionary dancer and choreographer Merce Cunningham across three decades of performances

A century after his birth, in 1919, Merce Cunningham receives the audiovisual tribute he deserves. Regarded along with Pina Bausch and other artistes as the forerunner of postmodern dance, Cunningham was a versatile performer distinguished for his original choreographies and powerful dancing. The documentary reviews his artistic evolution from his difficult arrival in New York City during the post-war period to his glory days as one of the most influential choreographers in the world.
