About this submission

After a young woman is sexually assaulted by her ballet teacher, she must find the strength to continue her art.

Sexual assault continues to be a terrible reality within the film and performing arts industries, as well as in educational institutions. We must continue to raise awareness, support survivors, and combat systemic rape culture. In this film I mix narrative film conventions and screendance together in an experimental way, exploring the beauty and joy of dance, the visual lines of the body created by ballet, the trauma of assault, and how the body is sexualized and seen in dance.
