Witness the rise of the human spirit through the power of dance! Eight (8) lucky winners will receive ALIVE AND KICKING on DVD!
From the emergence of the Lindy Hop to the Modern Day Dance Phenomenon, the exuberant documentary swings onto DVD and Digital HD July 11 from Magnolia Home Entertainment!
Susan Glatzer makes her directorial debut with the enthralling documentary that revisits the origins of swing, slides onto the dance floor with competitive modern-day enthusiasts, and examines the positive mental and emotional affects of dancing. ALIVE AND KICKING celebrates the vibrant history of swing, and the joy it continues to bring to dancers today. Originating in Harlem during the Great Depression, swing was created to alleviate the economic and social stressors of the 1930s. Since its revival, swing has not only proven to be a fun and competitive past time, but has also aided in strengthening human connection within our modern society that has become overwhelmingly reliant on digital communication. The film features archival footage and recent interviews with swing legends Norma Miller and the late Frankie Manning, alongside new, vivacious swing dancers making their mark on the dance floor. Swinging into the modern-day dance community, ALIVE AND KICKING gives audiences the chance to see how the dance can enhance the mental and emotional lives of people from all walks of life.
Special features for ALIVE AND KICKING includes commentary from Director Susan Glatzer and Director of Photography John W. MacDonald, deleted scenes, an interview with Glatzer, and a theatrical trailer.
