BENT-JORGEN PERLMUTT received support for Against the Clock, a documentary about car racing.  As Cuba lifts its 50-year ban on car racing, five of its top drag racers prepare their American classics to compete.  The vast changes sweeping Cuba are evident in these drivers’ struggle to gear up for the first official race since the Revolution. From the race’s announcement, through the challenges they face preparing their cars and the obstacles they encounter from the Government, these racers reveal an intimate portrait of life in Cuba today.  The film’s story is told from the perspective of the racers with no narration and few interviews, ultimately allowing the characters to speak for themselves.  Shot mostly hand-held in an observational style, the film will have an intimate, fly-on-the-wall demeanor providing a unique window into a society that could quite possibly be undergoing change.

The MINNESOTA DANCE THEATRE, Minneapolis, Minnesota, received a two-year grant of $24,000 in support of the creation of new work by its choreographer in residence, Wynn Fricke. Employing a company of eight dancers, the Minnesota Dance Theatre's repertory includes works by its founder Loyce Houlton, its current Artistic Director Lise Houlton, and national and local choreographers. After receiving Jerome subsidy for several years to commission works by a variety of choreographers, the Minnesota Dance Theatre decided to focus on a more substantial residency program for one choreographer, Wynn Fricke, with whom it has worked in the past. This will enable Fricke to participate in the development of the season, be engaged in the school, and develop a body of work that will advance her choreography and the repertory of the company.
