The collaboration between Merce Cunningham and Charles Atlas speaks of the exciting coming together of dance and image. The film director met the choreographer at a very young age and worked for an approximate ten years for his Company. This collaboration gave birth to real gems; Charles Atlas invented a whole new art of framing and unframing, based on changes in direction, speeding up and slowing down, dancers continually appearing and disappearing from the framing of his images.

Produced in partnership with "la Cinémathèque de la danse" from Paris.
