Short Film: APPREHENSION, 3min., Canada, Experimental

38e31790cd poster

A visual representation of a women’s anxiety in it’s day to day form.

Apprehension is the concept of fear, anxiety, and nervousness. That sick feeling you get in your stomach. This is what many feel through everyday life. A constant reminder of how our minds are the most powerful force in our body. This same feeling is revealed through visuals of beauty, calmness, and static posture. Inserts of uneasiness, things that represent what we fear, and tools of escapism will contrast with our current state of mind.

Dance Film: MOVEMENT NEVER LIES, 3min., France, Dance

31c378edc3 posterA dance floor as a giant canvas and my own body as a paintbrush. With this project, I wanted to explore transdisciplinarity in art, by making a parallel between dance and calligraphy. In both domains, the movement is the most important.

To draw a beautiful letter, the calligrapher must have a perfect hand gestural. More generally, gestural that we can see in any hand writing is telling something from the one who wrote it.
Dancers are telling things with body, gestural, and movements. The way someone is moving are telling a lot about him.

To support this reflexion, I have decided to use a citation of the choreographor Martha Graham : “Movement Never Lies”.

Dance Film: THE VEIL OF ACUMEN, 3min., Canada, Dance

74b0482472 poster

Dance video with a focus on questions around identity and its fluidity, meaning that culture and popular media create a define imprint on people’s unconsciousness and the way we see ourselves and others in the world

In this piece is a visualization of how people see others in “a package.” We all have our own bias and ideas around chosen cultures and ideas which are more likely have been formed through the influence of popular media, socio-political context and most importantly person’s surrounding. When a person says he is coming from from a particular country, people tent to immediately transfer their personal associations and ideas on to him/her and create an invisible “shell” of stigmas and stereotypes.

Short Film: FORMS, 3min., South Africa, Dance

78899a58f3 posterThree art forms: dance, music and film combined on a single canvas in an audiovisual explosion!

A coming together of three creative forces, FORMS sees hip-hop artist Rouge, choreographer Rudi Smit and director Alex Fynn collaborate on a dance music video that highlights their respective talents and presents it in one neat package. Set in an apocalyptic future, circa 2034, where groups are forbidden from mobilising and are closely monitored to prevent them from challenging the overarching control of the city, a small mob of individuals comes together under the leadership of Rouge to unite against the system. “The aim of the mob is to make some sort of powerful but peaceful statement that challenges the security. That they don’t have the power to stop these rebels from being united for change.”
