SXSW world premier BORN TO FLY post screening Q&A w director Catherine Gund and ELIZABETH STREB

SXSW Left Tilda Swinton's public conversation (oh no you think..but I have had the same conversation with her privately) to go see the world premier of Catherine Gund's BORN TO FLY the Elizabeth STREB documentary Bot women,director Gund and choreographer-provocateur STREB  have each had  the courage to take flight. Gund best know for her kid-centric  healthy food and how to cook it documentary What's on Your Plate? In Born to Fly Gund takes a wild leap forward and documents the body challenging feats of dance that signify STREB's company's physical discipline, BORN TO FLY is a  masterful example of complicated story telling, All I can say is WOW.. and how did they do THAT? This live action real time footage has none of the new tricks of simulation Hollywood Action Hero flicks have . What you see is actually happening.

Gund shot some amazing STRB dances including the endorphin shower of doing and watching STEB walk down the sleek, slippery totally glass top to bottom of the London City Hall during the London Olympics in 2012 ... BORN TO FLY is lyrical with out being sentimental.The arch of film is letting go of fear ...... to fly. Going beyond the limits fear resticts imagination and physical accomplishment,This is dance at it most muscular poetic beauty (Film Forum in Sept)  

Watch the post screening world premier
