This 90-minute PBS American Masters film chronicles the intense creative journey of Bill T. Jones - a 2010 Kennedy Center Honors recipient and two-time Tony Award winner for Best Choreography - as he tackles the most ambitious work of his career and leads the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company in the creation of Fondly Do We Hope... Fervently Do We Pray, an original dance-theater piece in honor of Abraham Lincoln's bicentennial commissioned by Ravinia Festival. Co-directors Bob Hercules of Media Process Group and Gordon Quinn of Kartemquin Films provide a window into the creative process and the creative crisis of one of our nation's most enduring, provocative artists as he explores what it means to be a good man, to be a free man, to be a citizen.
Made possible by a generous gift from June Porter Johnson.
