Winners of Dance Films’ What Moves You Challenge

Dance Films Association recently held a competition called “What Moves You? 48 Hour Challenge”.  The premise was simple: Create a dance film inspired by the news in forty-eight hours.  By setting a time limit, the emphasis was on creativity rather than budget.  The full list of winners is posted on DFA’s website.  David Fishel won the top prize for “And That’s the Way It Is” (above), based on this July 17th New York Post article about the death of Walter Cronkite, ending an “era of trust” in the United States.  The second prize went to Alex Springer, Ian Burley, and Xan Burley for “Daylighting” (below), which is based on this New York Times article about the process of “daylighting” rivers and streams that have been buried under pavement.
