Opus Jazz: Jerome Robbin's Jazzy Ballet on Film (video)

My friend Mike sent me the link to this gorgeous looking dance film "Opus Jazz" that premiered March 24 on PBS and at Lincoln Center. Described as:

a scripted adaptation of a 1958 "ballet in sneakers" by Jerome Robbins, a companion piece to his legendary West Side Story, that tells an abstract tale of disaffected urban youth. Shot on location all over New York City on anamorphic 35mm, the film returns the original choreography to the streets that inspired it and stars an ensemble cast of dancers from the New York City Ballet.

I'm pretty upset that I missed this. I'm hoping it shows again in a theater near me!
