Synopsis

This film is available online HERE

North American Premiere

As part of a series of workshops, children with physical disabilities try out different dance techniques. Using virtual reality headsets, they are even able to see what dancers see. Somewhere between fiction and experimentation, this short film plunges us into a dreamlike and fantastical world peopled by demi-gods. A new golden age and a step outside the norm.
