Synopsis

This film is available online HERE

Canadian Premiere

Making its Canadian premiere, this film is a window into the inner world of dancers who use movement to escape their bleak and oppressive reality as Irish citizens, stuck between Northern Ireland and the South. Filmed in black and white, this film explores movement and powerfully conveys these artists’ fears and loneliness.

Directors

Arturo Bandinelli

Originally from Italy, Arturo is a freelance film maker working in London where he studied at London College of Communication, graduating in 2013 with a first class honours degree. He is constantly looking for new challenges, aiming at the creation of unique and valuable content for a range of different video formats, and trying to learn something new from each project. From adverts to drama, from music promos to live events and corporate videography, his goal is to communicate the key message clearly, by means of a sharp concept and an engaging visual style.
He has worked as a film director and videographer for Dream Pix UK, Richard Jolly TV and Haymarket LTD.

Director statement - I’m a Shooting Director, Editor and Colourist based in London, but I work all around Europe and – sometimes – beyond. I have gained experience on a range of different formats: from commercials to music promos, from corporate videos to drama and documentaries. No matter the format, I believe in communicating the key message clearly, by means of a sharp concept and an engaging visual style. Besides moving images and sound, I am also very passionate about cooking (I am Italian, afterall!) and Lacanian psychoanalysis.
