An award-winning documentary

It seems like two separate realms. One is occupied by acclaimed dancers from Brooklyn’s world renowned Mark Morris Dance Group, the other by people with Parkinson’s disease. Capturing Grace is about what happens when those two worlds intersect.

Filmed over the course of a year, Dave Iverson’s remarkable documentary reveals the hopes, fears, and triumphs of this newly forged community as they work together to create a unique, life-changing performance.

It’s a story filled with compelling moments and enduring characters who demonstrate the transformative power of art and the strength of the human spirit…and in so doing rediscover the meaning of grace.

Capturing Grace premiered at the Mill Valley Film Festival, and went on to win multiple awards at festivals around the world. Capturing Grace was broadcast on PBS in the summer of 2015. It has inspired workshops, panel discussions, and college seminars focused on the power of community and the arts to provide hope, foster resilience, and transform a person’s Parkinson’s journey.
