The short documentary “My dance” shows the beginning of a new journey in a woman's life. In her early thirties, longing for meaning and fulfillment, she discovers dance as a way to gain self-knowledge, strength, and a new career. The film follows the creative process, at first represented by subtle and shy movements inside her own room. As she gains confidence and more clarity about her feelings, the dance evolves. From her room to the stage, from the stage to real life, she presents a choreography on the rooftop of a building in the middle of São Paulo, the largest city in Brazil. The dance conducts the narrative and, metaphorically, works a way to find a new perspective, a new rhythm in life. Directed by women and with a female crew in all stages of production, My dance is a film about having the courage to investigate yourself in search of who you really want to be.
Director Alexander Pfander
