BREATH MADE VISIBLE is the first feature length film about the life and career of Anna Halprin, the American dance pioneer who has helped redefine our notion of modern art with her belief in dance’s power to teach, heal, and transform at all ages of life.
This cinematic portrait blends recent interviews with counterparts such as the late Merce Cunningham, archival footage, including her establishment of the first multiracial dance company in the U.S, and excerpts of current performances such as “Parades and Changes” at
the Georges Pompidou Center in Paris, to weave a stunning, inspiring account of one of the most important cultural icons in modern dance.
BREATH MADE VISIBLE IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED BY ACADEMICS:
"I hope Breath Made Visible receives wide-spread viewing in colleges everywhere. I was enraptured by this remarkable film, which moved and inspired me. Breath Made Visible deepened my appreciation of Anna Halprin's work, documenting her evolution as an influential dance artist within the social context of her time, while also illuminating her own inner journey."
- Barbara Forbes, Professor, Sarah Lawrence College
"Breath Made Visible is a beautifully intimate portrait of one of the most influential artists and teachers of the twentieth century, Anna Halprin. The film vividly portrays her charismatic personality and her work achieves a density and cohesiveness that invites rediscovery of just how profoundly significant she has been in shaping American culture."
- Janice Ross, Professor, Drama Department. Director of Dance Division, Stanford University. President, Society of Dance History Scholars
"Best 2010 Documentary"
" HIGHLY RECOMMENDED"
