A film by Ron Mann
Year of production: 1989
Running Time: 80 Minutes
Combining rare and often hilarious archival footage with interviews, Twist chronicles the evolution of rock and roll dance.
From the time when moving hips marked you as a social degenerate, to a time when shaking your "thing" became the dance-form that rocked the world.
