Drawing inspiration from Jean-Paul Sartre’s existential philosophy, and using the mesmeric repetitions of Philip Glass (Metamorphosis four), this exquisite short examines the nature of human identity. With choreography by Guillaume Côté, and featuring Greta Hodgkinson, the principal dancer of The National Ballet of Canada.

This short precedes the feature film POLINA.
