"to the bones of this home" documents the construction of a home over time and the inevitable loss that comes with growth.

words from the filmmaker

Through movement and monologue, "to the bones of this home" pays homage to the intimacy and beauty present in ordinary experience and the inherent magic in the everyday. In short, this film is a love letter.

why we love this film

A dance film without music sounds like an oxymoron, but director/dancer Sarah Butler manages to draw us in with her voice, patience, and acute observation. We truly feel her ephemeral connection to this soon-to-be constructed home.
