Caught world premiere of excellent Water Flowing Together, doc about dancer Jock Soto at SilverDocs

Had it not been for SilverDocs I seriously doubt I would have come across Gwendolen Cates's love letter to a friend/celebration of a unique & accomplished American artist doc Water Flowing Together and that would have been a loss for me. Aside from dealing with the career of an artist, the film contemplates challenges involved in creating & maintaining a non-traditional individual identity in a multi-cultural society, aging & change, and a couple of different takes on the idea of family. I am interviewing Cates & the subject of the documentary - renowned dancer Jock Soto (a principal dancer for 20 years at the New York City Ballet) at the National Museum of the American Indian (Soto is Puerto Rican & Navajo) in Washington, D.C. later today, and after that (later tonight or early tomorrow) I will post a review of the movie & of course the interview. In the meantime, visit the SilverDocs page for Water to read more about it.

The Meyerowitz Stories is very good

Note - I saw the movie before the Dustin Hoffman sex assault allegations story broke.  Not sure what kind of an experience I would have had watching the movie had I knew about the allegations.
