Enter the FaunUSA, 2014 (68 min)Directors: Tamar Rogoff & Daisy Wright
San Francisco Dance Film Festival partners with UCSF/Reel Abilities and its Department of Physical Therapy & Rehabilitation Science to present the documentary film Enter the Faun. An unlikely collaboration between a veteran choreographer and a young actor with cerebral palsy delivers astonishing proof that everyone is capable of transformation.
As choreographer Tamar Rogoff trains Gregg Mozgala to dance in her performance, the two discover that her lack of formal medical training and his fears and physical limitations are not obstacles but the impetus for her choreography and their unprecedented discoveries.
Rogoff and Mozgala will be joined immediately after the screening by dance therapist, Anne Krantz, Ph.D., BG-DMT and Dr. Kimberly Topp, Ph.D., PT, UCSF’s Chair of Physical Therapy for a discussion and Q&A.
