Join me to discuss my film at Jacob’s Pillow

Last year, I participated in my first ever PillowTalk at Jacob’s Pillow along with New York City Ballet’s Ellen Barr & Wendy Whelan, talking as an expert about the Art of Promotion using dance film. The Pillow has interesting & informative talks by brilliant dancers, artistic directors, dance photographers, filmmakers, writers and more every single week, and it’s a huge honor to be included in this group.

So I was especially excited to be asked to share my newest documentary film about Nejla Y. Yatkin, Where Women Don’t Dance, as part of the PillowTalk series this summer! We had a preview showing of the film in Chicago, and we’re still working on its official premiere, but screening this close-to-final version at the Pillow is a wonderful opportunity!

I hope you’ll join us next Saturday, July 18 at 4pm to see the film and participate in the discussion if you’re in the Berkshires. See you there!!
