Private Project


DANCER is an experimental silent film that was made to capture the purity of a woman's body in a world that evokes chaos and distortion. The close up shots of the dancer's tap dancing legs is representative of her resilience and grace, the shots are layered to represent an idea of 'going on forever.' Eye contact is made so the viewer feels a deeper connection to the subject, a feeling of humanity and emotional engagement. Focusing on body parts and sexualization; DANCER is about beauty, purity and innocence. It was made to stimulate a physical desire, juxtaposed with delicate audio by HEART OF PALM.
