Screening of John Cohen's film "Dancing with the Incas" (1992), part of his series of now-historic Peruvian ethnographic films in conjunction with his residency at Wesleyan. The film, in Mr. Cohen's signature style, features the lives and performances of mountain immigrants to Lima, centering on huayno song and dance. Mr. Cohen, now 80, is being celebrated for his work on Appalachian music and the art/poetry/music scene of 1950s-1960s New York.
