My Mother's Idea (2011)
47min · Documentary, Comedy, Family · 1 January 2011
A cross genre documentary - a memoir of sorts that looks back at the experience of studying ballet at one of the most renowned ballet schools in the country and the two dancers - Walter Camryn and Bentley Stone, who ran the school for 45 years. Director Finitzo, herself a former student uses humor, memory, archival footage, narrative filmmaking interlaced with interviews of family and former students to highlight the dance careers of both men and more importantly the power they had as teachers and the profound impact what they taught about dance and life had on the lives of their students.
