Q&A with Catherine Gund and Elizabeth Streb!
The “Evel Knievel of dance,” Elizabeth Streb pushes her dancers to trade fear for “extreme action” as they walk on walls, spin from cables, and aim for the sky. Director Catherine Gund provides close access to Streb and her daredevil company, allowing viewers to share her life at home, in rehearsal, and on the road, including a breathtaking performance in London just prior to the 2012 Olympics. A Kino Lorber release.
Benjamin Epps, USA, 2014, HDCAM, 7m
