Stopping Time

Just So - 4’ (2015)

Dancer Lindsay Kemp both amused and outraged audiences in London throughout the Sixties and Seventies. He taught David Bowie and Kate Bush how to move, and now at 77 is still teaching and dancing. We find Lindsay in the Italian port of Livorno, admired by a small coterie of students and fans, but largely forgotten by the outside world. He’s full of life but also dealing with passing time, which is both eating at his body and pushing him further adrift from his love of performance and the stage.

"Both beautiful and utterly heartbreaking... one of the most affecting things I’ve seen all year."
