The mechanisms of memory are mysterious. If you had to choose seven moments that summarized your whole life, which ones would you choose? In “The dance of memory” the director takes us into the deep ocean of her old family videos in order to find the clues that lead us through her quest. This is a documentary essay full of visual poetry, where memory gets scrapped into people and places to reveal the origins of memory. NY state premiere. Followed by panel & Skype discussion w/Gabriela Domínguez Ruvalcaba.
