Hanson Film TV Institute, in collaboration with The University of Arizona School of Dance and College of Humanities' Africana Studies, presents a Black History Month screening of Khadifa Wong’s "Uprooted."

"Uprooted" is a feature-length documentary celebrating the history, lineage, and future progressions of jazz dance. The screening is free at the Stevie Eller Dance Theatre on Friday, Feb. 10 at 7p.

"This documentary will make you fall in love with jazz dance all over again." -- Dance Magazine

>> MORE | azart.fyi/Uprooted

This screening will be followed by a Q&A with the filmmakers Khadifa Wong (director), Matt Simpkins, and Laura Smyth.

With a stellar cast of leading industry experts, award-winning choreographers, and legendary performers, this ground-breaking documentary goes back to the roots in Africa and follows the evolution of this incredible dance form through every single decade and genre.

Exploring and commenting on political and social influences, the film addresses topics such as appropriation, racism, socialism and sexism.

“(Wong's) documentary offers an enriching corrective to the official story of jazz dance, taking it beyond its already fascinating and complex showbiz luster to profoundly political terrain.” -- Hollywood Reporter

With special appearances by Debbie Allen, George Faison, Chita Rivera, Camille A. Brown and Thomas F. DeFrantz and showcases the works of the Nicholas Brothers, Pepsi Bethel, Jack Cole, Katherine Dunham, Bob Fosse and Gene Kelly.
