We celebrate famed choreographer and dancer Martha Graham's 117th birthday with this choice recommendation: Criterion's Martha Graham: Dance on Film. It is "a fascinating snapshot of the legendary choreographer's innovative work and a primer for anyone interested in finding out more about modern dance," says DVDTalk. "Gathering together three vintage television programs, we receive a tutorial from Graham herself and see her perform in two of her most famous ballets. It's not light viewing in some ways, but it is a mesmerizing combination of image and movement, music and design, that is never boring and that intrigues while it inspires." And more from IFQ.
