SYNOPSIS: The workings of memory are mysterious. If you had to choose seven moments that summed up your whole life, which ones would you choose? In The Dance of Memory, the director plunges into an ocean of family videos to find the clues that lead us through her quest. This is a documentary essay of visual poetry, one in which memory breaks down to reveal the people and places at the very origins of memory.
