Film portrait Carolyn Carlson, Dare to risk - 2021, France, 52 min by Damien Pettigrew – Preview

Screening with Carolyn Carlson, director Damien Pettigrew and producer Olivier Gal.

This documentary chronicles a unique creative process: the great choreographer gives us unprecedented access to her work, her current projects and her personal archives. The carefully selected archival images covering the last forty years reveal the influence that her life and her deep connections with the unconscious had on the complex and imaginative pieces she created. Featuring exclusive interviews, intimate rehearsal sequences and dazzling dance sequences, the film is the first critical perspective on the brilliant career of a multi-faceted woman.
