In collaboration with Maine Film Center at Railroad Square Cinema, the films selected within this Campus + Community Film series are directly related and inspired by the Colby College Museum of Art current exhibitions and collections.
And Then We Danced (2020, 1:53) follows Merab, a devoted dancer who has been training for years with his partner Mary for a spot in the National Georgian Ensemble. The arrival of another male dancer, with a rebellious streak, sparks a rivalry and romantic desire that challenges his ideas about what he wants from his life in a country where traditionalism reigns in the world of dance, and in society as whole. This film series is inspired by the exhibition, Alex Katz: Theater and Dance, on view now at the Colby College Museum of Art.
This screening is free and open to all.
