Images from Paul Sarvis’ 6-minute film “Rooms”

The short film “Rooms,” by Paul Sarvis, chair of Bowdoin’s theater and dance department, will be screened Feb. 1 as part of the 42nd annual Dance on Camera Festival at the Film Society of Lincoln Center in New York City. Featured as part of the festival’s Shorts program, the film portrays an elderly life and a youthful life through interlocking images “to suggest a relationship between the two even though one may not exist.”

Sarvis’ film premiered last fall in juried screenings at the Sans Souci Festival in Boulder, Colorado, and at DANCE:FILM 13 in Edinburgh, Scotland. It will also be included in the World of Women Festival in Sydney, Australia, this coming March.
