What inspires the Calgary International Film Festival (CIFF)? Seeing the world in a new light. Sharing the best visual stories from our backyard and around the globe. Welcoming new friends and ideas. A great party.
We’re proud to once again sponsor CIFF in collaboration with PwC Calgary’s Women Upfront committee for the fifth consecutive year. On Friday, September 19, 2014, we’ll be hosting an exclusive screening of BORN TO FLY: Elizabeth Streb vs. Gravity, of the great films being presented at CIFF this year, followed by a cocktail reception. We have limited space available for this event.
BORN TO FLY: Elizabeth Streb vs. Gravity
Elizabeth Streb and the STREB Extreme Action Company form a motley troupe of flyers and crashers. Propelled by Streb’s edict that “anything too safe is not action,” these daredevils challenge the assumptions of art, aging, injury, gender, and human possibility. BORN TO FLY: Elizabeth Streb vs. Gravity traces the evolution of Elizabeth Streb’s movement philosophy as she pushes herself and her performers from the ground to the sky. Revealing the passions behind the dancers’ bruises and broken noses, BORN TO FLY offers a breathtaking tale about the necessity of art, inspiring audiences hungry for a more tactile and fierce existence.
