  • LOST AND FOUND by Fabrizio Maltese, producers: EAVE graduates Marion Guth and Cédric Bonin is in development. Fabrizio Maltese’s documentary highlights a blind spot of art history. In pop culture and art, the representation of the male body was turned upside down at the turn of the 1980s with the devastating onslaught of AIDS. Lost & Found looks for early evidence of how art, and contemporary dance in particular, responded to the trauma of the new disease.
