3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 170 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Revolutionary modern dancer and choreographer José Limón (1908-1972) was a crucial figure in the development of modern dance: his powerful dancing shifted perceptions of the male dancer, while his choreography continues to bring a dramatic vision of dance to audiences around the world. This film combines interviews with family members and colleagues, archival photographs, and archival and contemporary performances to present his life and major works in the context of the times. Limón was a man who dealt with his bi-conflicts through his art. Excerpts from productions beautifully filmed in the fifties include "The Moor's Pavane," "The Traitor," and "Emperor Jones."
