This screening is part of our celebration of pride in Kriterion. The other film Tongues Untied (1989) will be shown on August 1st.
“Imagine Climax but the drink didn’t get spiked, so a bunch of beautiful dancers just had a lovely time.”
Fifteen young dancers of various origins and horizons, touring with ‘Crowd’: choreographer Gisèle Vienne’s dance piece on the 90’s rave scene. Following them from theatre to theatre, If It Were Love (Si c’était de l’amour) documents their work as well as their strange, intimate relationships. For the line becomes blurry, the stage seems to contaminate real life—unless the opposite is happening. From a dance documentary, the film grows into a troubling journey into our nights, our parties, our loves.
A special screening in celebration of Pride month.
