The Sedona International Film Festival continues its summer documentary series with the one-night-only screenings of "Tap World," an award-winning, entertaining and inspiring new documentary. The film will show Thursday, Aug. 13, at 4 and 7 p.m. at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre.

"The language of music is rhythm. Rhythm is the language of life. Ryhthm is the international language," so says one of the tap dancers in "Tap World," a documentary film that looks at the lives and contemporary styles of the American art form known as tap dance - as practiced around the world.

The dancing in "Tap World" showcases the innovations of artists in the 21st century, focusing on styles that are deeply connected to an improvisational jazz spirit, more so than to the precision choreography of a Broadway show.

"Tap World" will be shown one day only. Tickets are $12, or $9 for Film Festival members. For tickets and more information, please call 928-282-1177.

Both the theatre and film festival office are located at 2030 W. Highway 89A, in West Sedona. For more information, visit: www.SedonaFilmFestival.org.
