Alla Kovgan proves that 3D is not reserved for action and fantasy films. In 'Cunningham', Kovgan has captured the life of Wence Cummingham, pioneer of 20thcentury dance, in 3D. Cummingham's influence on modern dance, as well as the contemporary art scene of post-World War II New York cannot be underestimated. Kovgan merges archived video material of Cummingham with recordings of contemporary interpretations of Cummingham's work -performed at unconventional locations: from lecture halls to rooftops. The 3D effect captures the dancing in an almost sensual, palpable way, that even a live performance can't offer.
