Alive & Kicking Doc Poster

Alive & Kicking gives the audience an intimate, insider’s view into the culture of the current swing dance world while shedding light on issues facing modern society. No matter what troubles they are facing in their lives, swing dancers are filled with joy, exhilaration, and even giddiness while they dance. Boiled down to its core, swing dancing is about the pursuit of happiness. Most people think of happiness as a passive emotion: if something good happens, I will be happy. But we all have the ability to feel joy despite the worst of circumstances once we realize that happiness exists inside of us. Alive & Kicking is directed by filmmaker Susan Glatzer, making her directorial debut. It first premiered at the 2016 SXSW Film Festival. Magnolia will release Alive & Kicking in select theaters + on VOD starting April 7th this spring. Thoughts?

Well up for checking this. Interesting the exercise and and-depressant angle. I suppose most importantly it's sociable.
