Lamentation by Martha Graham


A silent color film of Martha Graham dancing extracts of "Lamentation" (1930)

Filmed in 1943 at Bennington College by Russian-born sculptor Simon Moselsio. His wife, who took still photos of the same piece, explained "We used two movie cameras for the motion picture, so we could take the picture from different angles.... I had the still camera around my neck and made the stills at the same time."
