"Black Grace: From Cannon’s Creek to Jacob’s Pillow" screens alongside two short short documentaries, "Islands of Light: South Pacific Dance" and "Bro's Being Bro's."

- "Black Grace: From Cannon’s Creek to Jacob’s Pillow"
(2004, 57 min, dir. Aileen O’Sullivan)

A dance troupe of Pacific Islander and Māori men, Black Grace first burst onto the New Zealand stage in 1995. This documentary follows Black Grace’s journey from Cannon’s Creek, Porirua to the prestigious Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival in North America. Fusing traditional Pacific and contemporary dance forms with athleticism and grace, they electrified audiences. Led by Artistic Director Neil Ieremia, Black Grace evolved from a crew of Neil’s mates into one of New Zealand’s national treasures and an international success.

- "Islands of Light: South Pacific Dance"
(1988, 10 min, dir. David Robertson)

A journey through equatorial Samoa and the Cook Islands to sub- tropical North Island, New Zealand. Against this dramatic South Pacific landscape, the film reveals the exciting and colourful variations in dance styles of Polynesia.
Dances include: “Sasa, Haka and Ura pa’u.”

- "Bro's Being Bro's"
(2014, 5min, Komako Silver & Will Moore)

Follows the young hip-hop dancer Tsar Marsters of Hamilton, in his journey to connect and empower the next generation through dance.
