LET ME DANCE
Short movie by SisterArt
LET ME DANCE is an Art-house engaged short movie over sexism in our Western countries. Without narrative, it resembles a music video and portraying six dancers. The protagonists dance freely, apparently. They pick a physical posture that will hinder their improvised dance. These postures are an expression of the physical strategies used to cope with sexist prejudices, recurrent insults in every day life. These are gestures of protection after being attacked. They limit self-esteem and the freedom of movement. Despite all this, the women, they dance.
