Bodies in Motion

Saturday 21 September


This selection of visually stunning dance films put the body and the soul in motion. Dance films are going through a resurgence, as evidenced by this vibrant selection of shorts that interweave narrative drama with dance. Portraits of places and people, layered dramas, soul-searching quests and love stories all have their place in this programme. The aesthetics of dance, and how to present it on film, are fascinating to watch, and each of the filmmakers has a distinctive approach.
