Don’t miss Sue Healey’s Lady of the Horizon by Sue Healey, a portrait of dancer Eileen Kramer who, at 106, is probably the oldest dancer and choreographer in the world.
Also to be seen this month, the splendid and intimate Akeji, le souffle de la montagne by Corentin Leconte and Mélanie Schaan, winner of the best essay award at the 39th edition of the Festival.
