Dance | Documentary | Music

Having begun in documentary filmmaking, Amiel Courtin-Wilson employed some of those skills on his feature debut Hail (CFF, 2012). After his Venice-award-winning Ruin (CFF, 2013) Courtin-Wilson returns to the documentary form with this intimate fly-on-the-wall portrait of free jazz pioneer Cecil Taylor. Capturing the great pianist at play with the Japanese actor and dancer Min Tanaka, the great joy in this meditative film is in witnessing two artists commune together, but there is a third presence in this dance in the shape of the delicately floating and unobtrusive camerawork.
