The Three Dumas

The Three Dumas 
Tropical Storm Isaac could not rain on our parade. The DocMiami special screening of The Three Dumas went on as planned even when South Florida was busy making Hurricane preparations. Many thanks to the wonderful audience who shared the exciting evening with us. Produced and directed by Esther ANDERSON & Gian GODOY exploring the life and career of Alexandre Dumas. The grandson of a slave, he overcame all the obstacles of prejudice to create the first modern superhero.

SYNOPSIS (THE THREE DUMAS) WRITTEN BY JOHN HOWE.For all his talent, energy and literary success, the French author Alexandre Dumas (1802-1870) is as much an interesting figure as his father General Dumas, also called Alexandre (1762-1806). The writer's major role in forming the Romantic movement is today somewhat overshadowed by his prolific output of adventure novels including the Three Musketeers saga, The Count of Monte Cristo and The Man in the Iron Mask.

All of her protégées appear in the film recounting their experiences alongside Mariemma and describe her invaluable contributions to dance, Spanish culture and history.
