MIRAGE [R: U] UK Premier
DIRECTOR: Adrian Hashimi
RUNTIME: 6 m GENRE: Dance
BLOCK F: DANCING THE NIGHT AWAY
In a life inundated with boundaries, the most difficult to overcome is the confinement of the mind.
The film Mirage follows “Dancer” ( Julienne “Jules” Rencher) as she battles the conditions that keep her bound.
Dancer is sometimes victorious and creates moments of freedom.
These bursts of exuberance contribute to her growing anguish. As each scene develops, she finds herself in a more constricting state than before. Q&A with Director Adrian Hashimi after the screening.
SCREENING: Thursday 23.08.18, 9.15-10.00 PM
