“All That Jazz” 35th Anniversary Screening at the Dance on Camera Festival

On February 1st All That Jazz was screened as part of the Dance on Camera Film Festival 2015 a co-presentation with Dance Films Association and the Film Society of Lincoln Center.
 
The film screening included a panel discussion with assistant choreographer Gene Foote, Nicole Fosse, and two dancers from the film: Eileen Casey and Candace Tovar.

All-That-Jazz-Lrg“Bob Fosse’s film both celebrates show business and strips it of its glitter, glamour and all that jazz.” Winner of 4 Academy Awards and voted a Palm d’Or (Best Picture) at the Cannes Film Festival 1980 ROY SCHEIDER in

ALL THAT JAZZ

“It’s showtime, folks!” That’s the refrain of anxiety-ridden and unhealthfully driven choreographer Joe Gideon (Roy Scheider) at the center of Fosse’s semi-autobiographical musical extravaganza, also featuring star turns by Ann Reinking, Ben Vereen, and Jessica Lange. Scheider is never less than captivating in his portrayal of Gideon, a complicated figure not so secretly patterned after Fosse himself. Long out of circulation, the Oscar-winning tour de force is back on the big screen after a 15-year 4K digital restoration by The Film Foundation.
