Ten years ago, screen technology was slower and bulkier, and iPods and MP3 players were just beginning to integrate video. A decade later, most of us view our lives through a steady stream of pixels. But can accessibility actually be isolating? Does YouTube puree cultural distinctions into banal pulp?
Presenters of the 10th-anniversary edition of the University of Utah's International Screendance Festival — "VideoDanza! Screendance from Latin America" — hope to spark those questions and more, particularly at the panel discussion after the second of two free public screenings Thursday afternoon and Friday evening. Throughout the week, university students will delve further into the technical aspects of film, investigate cross-cultural artistic experiences and explore the difference between live performance and dance made for the screen.
