An Evening with Mary Jane Doherty. The BU Cinematheque proudly opens its 2013 Fall series with Secundaria, BU filmmaking professor Mary Jane Doherty’s superb documentary observation of Cuba’s National Ballet School, subtly filmed and shaped from 21 trips to Havana. Doing both camera and sound, Doherty shows us exquisite dance up close, on a stunning visceral level, but also tells the extraordinary story of a ballet school which allows its students the chance to escape from poverty, but also, for the young and brave, the daring possibility to prance away from Cuba
