ENTELECHY...premiere and film festivals

Collaboration is key and one of my FAVORITE aspects of creating work. 

I'm thrilled that the short film I choreographed for Ariana Delawari, ENTELECHY, will be screening at three festivals this spring: cleveland international film festivalboston international film festival, and deep focus: women in film, a new festival in Ireland. 

ENTELECHY is a haunting experimental, docu-musical about global warming and changing the dream. A woman is guided by a dream therapist onto a shamanic journey through the inner and outer worlds of being. Within the dream state she works to shift her dream to a vision of love, and in doing so succeeds in shifting the universal dream as well.

With an original soundtrack by Delawari and Butchy Fuego, from their yet to be released album, the film features Ariana Delawari, Daniel Blinkoff, Bo Foxworth, Lita Albuquerque, Austin Westbay and Lila Danscecs with cinematography by BΓ©rΓ©nice Eveno and editing by Mariana Blanco.  A big thank you to producer Nicole Disson for bringing me on board,
