PHYSICAL THOUGHTS (UNITED STATES)

BY ANNE HOLLOWDAY

A dancer reflects on a recent injury. A dancer's body is their whole life. It is the sum total of their history, it’s the medium through which they make a living and it’s their method of creative expression. After a dramatic injury puts a professional dancer out of action for six months, she reflects on how our physical thoughts reveal who we are, perhaps even more than what we say. A meditation on authenticity, the creative life and facing one's own fears, Physical Thoughts is the document of an injury and a poetic distillation of wisdom for every artist. Running time: 00:03:32.

MEMORIES (SWEDEN)

BY KRISTIN JOHANNESSEN

A story of odd thoughts and fear is woven together in my film.” Running time: 00:13:32.
