A short dance film about getting up.

words from the filmmaker

As if she had collapsed from the sky. We see a creature motionless on the ground, under the mucus and with just enough power to breathe. The long legs stretched out, the knees bony. The face hidden under the arms, anonymous, alone. To survive, an apparently impossible challenge lies in the prospect: Getting up. How do you get up if you are thrown into life so hard? How do you proceed if life attacks you bluntly? How do you stand up if you don't know how to get your body together? Re: Born is dance film about the force that must be found and that must be felt in every fiber, the force that is needed to believe in the body (again), that is needed to rise.

why we love this film

The rawness and vulnerability in this film is inspiring. The performer's bravery and director's thoughtful lens make this a memorable piece.
