Dance for Camera (2003)

Dance For Camera is a collection of the most outstanding examples of a new film genre that merges performance and film aesthetics. Selected from festivals in Europe and North America, and winners of over 17 international awards, these six dance films present an array of humor, drama, beauty and rhythm not usually seen on film or stage. A cross between experimental, narrative film and video art, these six films offer an enticing, challenging, and inspiring way to experience the vibrancy of live dance, the rhythm of choreography and editing, and the magnitude and visual intimacy of the screen.
The films included are:

REINES D’UN JOUR, Switzerland, 26 minutes
Six tumbling bodies on mountain slopes of the Alps, caught between Heaven and Earth, among the cows and the villagers. This strikingly visual and sensual dance performance is a powerfully funny tribute to the beauty of nature.

A relationship emerges between a man and woman that is revealed as much through their eyes as through the expressive timing of their rhythmically intricate steps.

REST IN PEACE, UK & Netherlands, 9 minutes
Four siblings bury their parents. As they dutifully carry the coffin, they begin to exhibit signs of anarchic behavior. Back home, all restraints break loose in a flurry of inexplicably bizarre activity. But hang on! What is that, buried away in a desk drawer? It seems that the parents had strange secrets of their own.
Choreographer: Hans Hof Ensemble; Director: Annick Vroom; Producer: Rodney Wilson, BBC
Awards: BEST OF FESTIVAL 2001, Dance on Camera Festival, New York

This vertiginous black and white film redefines gravity as an attractive force of right angles.

This film depicts an urban environment torn by violence, disorder, and loneliness where the light is sinister, daily life is hostile, and sleep is a nightmare.
