FOOTFALLS Showing at Wales Dance Symposium

From July 2012

We were thrilled to have been invited by Andy Eagle, Chapter Art Centre’s new director, to show FOOTFALLS before the Wim Wenders film PINA, about the great German choreographer Pina Bausch, at Chapter Arts Centre on Sunday July 1st.

The two films marked the end of the Wales Dance Symposium which took place at the Sherman Theatre and Chapter Arts Centre between June 29th and July 1st. We are very grateful to Andy Eagle and Chapter for their support.

FOOTFALLS at ‘Hay on Film’ weekend

From May 2012

Striking Attitudes was invited to the ‘Hay on Film’ weekend at Hay-on-Wye; the inaugural event of the Hay Film School, to show our latest dance film, FOOTFALLS.

‘Hay on Film’, which is supported by the Film Agency for Wales, is the brainchild of Cinematographer Alan Trow, British Society of Cinematographers and digital and post-production expert, Miguel Ferros MBKS.

FOOTFALLS was the first film to be shown in the new Richard Booth Cinema, which is part of the famous second-hand bookshop, and was followed by a Q and A session with Caroline Lamb. It was clear that the film made a very positive impression on all who attended.
