The award-winning documentary, "Limon: A Life Beyond Words," directed by Malachi Roth, will be aired on the Spanish television station HITN, on Sunday, October 18 at 9 PM as part of the celebration of Mexican independence. Narrated by Uta Hagen and Isaiah Sheffer, the film offers a compelling look at revolutionary modern dancer and choreographer Jose Limon (1908-1972), a native of Culiacan, Mexico. (HITN channel is carried throughout the U.S. and Puerto Rico – on Time Warner cable, programs can be seen on channel 831.)

The film follows Jose Limon's life chronologically, beginning with his birth in Mexico and his family's 1915 flight from the violence of the Mexican revolution. After emigrating to the U.S., Limon's mother died due to complications stemming from her thirteenth pregnancy. A devastated Limon became radicalized by left wing culture and decided to move to New York to become an artist during the height of the depression. Once in NY, however, he lost all interest in painting and was reborn by the discovery of modern dance. Though much older than most dancers, and not possessing a typical dancer's body, Limon's passion, persistence and unflinching dedication allowed him to rise through the ranks of the Humphrey/Weidman company. As both a dancer and choreographer, he became one of the major forces of 20th century dance. The film peaks with the successive triumphs of his robust career and closes with his final years, his later works, and his untimely death.

"This film is important to the entire dance world and to those everywhere who value artists."
Deborah Jowitt, Village Voice

"(Limon)….best male dancer of his own, or any other, time."
The New York Times

"This poetic film enriches our experience and understanding of this great artist."
Rose Ann Thom, Dance Magazine

"Roth's social conscience gives (the film) a strong sense of context, and he's adept at
linking Limon's works to the era of their creation or the man's own story."
Lewis Segal, The Los Angeles Times

"Old film footage conjures up incomparable dancers of the past and their choreographies to give us a very special frisson of delight."
Susi Lovell, The Montreal Gazette
