By Gabrielle Lansner


Caught between love and death, two brothers wrestle with their past in a dance towards reconciliation. A poetic film about the power of family ties, inspired by the novella of the same name by the Polish author, Jaroslaw Iwaszkiewicz.

Director’s Statement

As an innovative filmmaker, my work is influenced by my extensive background in choreography and performance. I am interested in creating a new narrative form that does not rely primarily on language. Evoking story and character through a physical language that is both emotional and psychological. Through dance, wordless scenes, and a sparse narration, the film moves fluidly between reality and the interior lives of the characters.

“It’s breathtaking to see dance used this way.” ~Ann Rosenquist Fee (judge)
