Program

BE AMONG THE FIRST TO SEE THE AWARD WINNING FILM SHOT AT RAVINIA

Directors Gordon Quinn (Hoop Dreams) and Bob Hercules (Forgiving Dr. Mengele) document choreographer Bill T. Jones's struggles and triumphs in creating a full-evening dance-theater work for Ravinia Festival. The movie was co-produced by American Masters, which will air it nationally Nov. 11 on PBS. What's unique about the documentary is Ravinia President Welz Kauffman, who hired the Tony-winning Jones to create a work celebrating the Lincoln bicentennial, also invited the filmmakers in at the very beginning so they could capture the two-year creative process in bringing Fondly Do We Hope...Fervently Do We Pray from concept to stage. Tickets are required and seating in Bennett Gordon Hall is limited.
