THROUGH GLASS by 420PEOPLE Dance Company combines contemporary dance and a visual story that describes the image of distorted reality: “Reflections, angles of view, distorted reality... but if you hold it against a mirror, the letters will go again in the right direction.“
words from the filmmaker
At the moment when the government banned theatrical performances and other mass events, I suddenly found myself without the possibility of creative creation for the audience in the traditional theatrical form. Luckily the Ministry of Culture of the Czech Republic saw this problem and announced a grant to support digital media. This grant enabled me to create a dance film together with the support of 420PEOPLE dance company. Support came also from the director Marek Partyš, who I invited to collaborate, together with the production company Bistro Films he often works for.
why we love this film
Excellent performances, stunning shots, and a clear voice. This felt like a book you don't want to put down.
