A feature-length, documentary film about the life, influence and impact of California-based artist, and activist Bella Lewitzky.
The film, Bella, is about the life, influence and impact of California-based artist and activist Bella Lewitzky. Described as"...one of the greatest American dancers of our age," (Walter Terry) Bella Lewitzky was a talented, strong, out-spoken artist, who dedicated her creative life to protect the rights of every American citizen. Designated one of America's Irreplaceable Dance Treasures by the Dance Heritage Coalition and awarded the National Medal of Arts by President Clinton, Lewitzky’s life demonstrates how a “uniquely Californian” artist with vision and tenacity can change the lives of her fellow citizens.
