Free Screening of A Good Man, Kartemquin Documentary on Bill T. Jones Work at Ravinia

At 7:30 p.m. on August 30, Ravinia Festival will host a free screening of A Good Man, the documentary directed by Gordon Quinn and Bob Hercules about choreographer Bill T. Jones's struggles and triumphs in creating a full-evening dance-theater work for Ravinia Festival. The movie was co-produced by PBS's American Masters, which will air it nationally on November 11. What's unique about the documentary is Ravinia President Welz Kauffman, who hired the Tony-winning Jones to create a work celebrating the Lincoln bicentennial, also invited the filmmakers in at the very beginning so they could capture the two-year creative process in bringing Fondly Do We Hope...Fervently Do We Pray from concept to stage. Tickets are required and seating in Bennett Gordon Hall is limited. Call 847-266-5100 or reserve your space now.
