Synopsis

Presented in partnership with ICI ARTV and Danse Danse

How can you know exactly what distinguishes art from life? In this film by Lut Vandekeybus about her brother, the choreographer and director Wim Vandekeybus, creativity and life seem impossible to separate. Without dwelling on superfluous chronology and using only evocative visual language, the Belgian documentary filmmaker presents the interconnections between biography, life and dance, powerful and supreme. At the core there is Wim Vandekeybus's family: his own children and the family he has created in his company, Ultima Vez, founded in 1986. Drawing on extensive archives, interviews and recordings, the film explores the poetic and complex world of this energetic, demanding artist who is driven by his need to create.
