Carmen and Geoffrey Details


Filmmakers [[Performer~P2725~Linda Atkinson~lindaatkinson]] and [[Performer~P231223~Nick Doob~nickdoob]] present this affectionate portrait of dance icons [[Performer~P17818~Carmen de Lavallade~carmendelavallade]] and [[Performer~P32833~Geoffrey Holder~geoffreyholder]], who fell in love back in 1954, and quickly went on to become a New York institution. The year they first met, [[Performer~P17818~de Lavallade~carmendelavallade]] was making a name for herself in modern dance, and [[Performer~P32833~Holder~geoffreyholder]] was a respected painter and dancer from Jamaica who had just risen to fame as the world-renowned choreographer of [[Feature~V55009~The Wiz~thewiz]]. A marriage proposal quickly followed, and 50 years later the couple is still setting the world on fire. Archival footage and candid interviews offer a glimpse into the remarkable lives of the two consummate professionals who never let fame get in the way of true love. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
