Ubud's renowned Amandari Resort will host a screening of classic heritage films on Bali July 1-3, 2010.

Held in conjunction with French Cinémathèque of Dance and the Swedish Dance Museum, a highlights of the three nights will be a rare screening of vintage films on Balinese dance made by Swede Rolf de Maré in the 1930s.

Shown over three nights, the vintage films will be screened in Kedewatan's village wantilan, located next door to the Amandari Resort.

The Schedule

• Thursday, July 1, 2010 - Goona Goona a 1932 dance film directed by Armand Denis and Andre Roosevelt (65 Minutes). Released to widespread popular acclaim, the film's U.S. version was titled "Love Powder" reflecting its loose plot-line of the love of a Balinese prince for a servant girl, whose affections for the prince are awakened by a secret "goona goona" love potion.

At the time when "Goona Goona" was released in the U.S.A., the Nicholas Brothers, child dancers from Harlem were stars at New York's Cotton Club. After intermission, a 45-minute montage of dance moments by the Nicholas Brothers will be shown. Parallels will undoubtedly be drawn between Harlem and Bali in the 1930s, both islands listed as inspirations to Miguel Covarrubias who came to Bali in this era.

• Friday, July 2, 2010. A screening of films shot by Rolf de Maré's 1938 expedition to Nias, Sulawesi, Sunda, Java and Bali.The film will be preceded by a selection of photographs of de Maré presented by Erik Naslund of the Dansmuseet of Stockholm, Sweden and author of a biography of Rolf de Maré. The film runs 90 minutes. Shown in two-parts, the film will run for 90 minutes and includes Balinese dances prepared and selected by the legendary Walter Spies.

• Saturday, July 3, 2010. A special screening of "Island of Bali – La Isla de Bali" made in the 1930s shot by Rose Covarrubias and directed by her husband, Miguel. Shot in 1930 and 1937, the film traces Miguel Covarrubias' epic written study of Balinese life and culture - "Island of Bali."

Screenings on each evening commence at 7:00 pm with refreshments available.
