Invitation to Dance

Christian von Tippelskirch and Simi Linton

2014 | 86 min | USA

Directors in Attendance

At age 23, en route to Washington with her husband for a protest against the Vietnam War, feisty New Yorker and aspiring dancer Simi Linton suffered a car accident that left her a young widow, unable to walk, facing an uncertain future. People with disabilities, she soon discovered, faced enormous discrimination and she joined forces with many others in the emerging U.S. disability rights movement of the 1970s. Invitation to Dance, co-directed by Simi, chronicles her remarkable life of constant activism, along with her determination to make dance a far more inclusive art, offering meditations and cinematic interludes on both the idea of movement and “the movement” for disability rights, reflecting her relentless quest for “equality, justice, and a place on the dance floor!”
