The language of music is rhythm. Rhythm is the language of life. Ryhthm is the international language,” so says one of the tap dancers in TAP WORLD, a documentary film that looks at the lives and contemporary styles of the American art form known as tap dance–as practiced around the world. The dancing in TAP WORLD showcases the the innovations of artists in the 21st century, focusing on styles that are deeply connected to an improvisational jazz spirit, moreso than to the precision choreography of a Broadway show. While Savion Glover and Gregory Hines are frequently mentioned as inspirations for these dancers, the artists profiled in the film have continued to evolve the art form to include the modern movements of urban street dances and to express the powerful energy and emotion in their souls. TAP WORLD travels the world to paint a portrait of the global tap community, with visits with dancers in Australia, Brazil, France, India, Japan, Russia, Spain, South Africa, Taiwan and across the United States.If one thing is certain, no matter where they reside, these dancers all reveal a burning desire to dance–often despite economic and social obstacles. Tap heals their souls.

Per Theater Chart: Tangerine Has Sweet Start

July 14th, 2015


The $10,000 club was busier that it was last week with four films earning a per theater average of more than $10,000. This includes the overall number one film, Minions, which earned an average of $26,905 in over 4,000 theaters. The best limited release was Tangerine with an average $15,171 in four theaters. I thought this might be a little too niche to find a large audience, but perhaps I was wrong. Up next is Baahubali: The Beginning, which was also a surprise hit with an average of $13,559 in 236 theaters. It is very rare for a Bollywood film to do that well. The final film in the $10,000 club was Do I Sound Gay? with $11,000 in its lone theater. More...
