Private Project


Dance is a universal language. With this in mind, filmmaker/choreographer William Lü explores the idea of using dance and movement as dialogs in this narrative film about a young man who struggles with longing and loss. STILL tells a story of a relationship bound in a cycle of uncertainty . Disjointed dialogues, empty embraces, and opposing desires impede the young man's waking hours as he struggles to come to terms with their reality.
