Can You Bring It: Bill T. Jones and “D-Man in the Waters”

The creative process behind D-Man in the Waters comes to life in this new documentary. The 1989 ballet served as a physical manifestation of emotions prompted by the AIDS epidemic, and the impact was cathartic—the dance paid homage to the many performers in New York’s arts community who had passed away. Three decades later, choreographer Bill T. Jones guides a group of young dancers in reconstructing his work.

Never Gonna Snow Again

“A modern fairy tale for a cynical world …” —Slant Magazine
On a foggy gray morning, a Russian masseur named Zhenia (Alec Utgoff, Stranger Things) arrives in a wealthy Polish community and begins booking massage appointments. His hypnotic presence and healing hands quickly make him popular with the residents, who seem to share an inner sadness. At the same time, Zhenia has his own worries: Why are two men looking for him? Poland’s submission for the 2021 Oscars, Never Gonna Snow Again is a meditation on class, immigration, and global warming, with a stylistic nod to David Lynch.
