FRIDAY NIGHT FILM AND DANCE PARTY

Girl Walk // All Day

Three dancers turn the sidewalks, parks and stadiums of New York City into a story of rebellion, love and discovery. This film is as much about the power of community and public space as it is a love letter to NYC. After the movie, join other BendFilm-goers for a dance party at Cascade Theatrical Company.
