Very enjoyable either as an expert or as a beginner.
The DVD is conveniently broken up into different chapters. Some document Graham's life; others are recordings of her dances and film productions she's made with her company and film industry colleagues. I watch my favorite chapter, "A Dancer's World," all the time. It's so enchanting - kind of like being lulled to sleep to the cadence of your favorite bedtime story. Also, if you pay close attention, throughout the DVD you'll see appearances from other awesome dancers like Merce Cunningham, Mary Hinkson, Yuriko and Paul Taylor.
Due to Graham's contributions to dance on film, this DVD is a great find for any cinephile. It's awesome that Nathan Kroll put this together. You won't be sorry you bought it!
