Description

DANCE FILM
16 mm, super8 / HD Transfer
2014
10 minutes

COSMOPOL is the first dance film by dancer and choreographer Ola Maciejewska. In this film, Maciejewska learns and appropriates the tricks of experimental film to re-enact a dream. In this particular dream, she is suspended in a constant fall. Dance and special effects are being paired to critically explore the perceptual mode of immersion. To experience the dream anew COSMOPOL was shoot in 16mm and super8. With the film as a medium, once the camera is rolling, one is never entirely able to predict what will be the final outcome, COSMOPOL incorporates film as part of the reflection on falling, and the unexpected.
