Watch the trailer for short film, “One Another,” a project by Dimitri Chamblas, dean of The Sharon Disney Lund School of Dance at CalArts and director Kevin Frilet.
The film was shot in Paris last summer and features CalArts dancers with choreography by CalArts Dance faculty Julie Bour. The seven-minute film, set to a poem written and performed by Robin Sanders, questions ephemeral communities and migrations by following a dance group lost in a city.
From its synopsis:
From the undergrounds of Paris, a group of people emerge from the darkness. The bodies mingle and intermingle to form one. With a regular step, they walk together towards the light… to finally get lost, in search of greatness. Wandering the streets of this city where the sky seems clear but the air so dense, everyone wanders according to his own epic stories, with his fears and hopes, with his loves and bitterness, with his rage and his tedium. They are the story we tell.
Featured CalArts dancers are: Maya Allen (BFA 19) , Shiloh Beckett (BFA 19), Audrey Collette (BFA 19), Damontae Hack (BFA 20), Kehari Hutchinson (BFA 21), Catalina Jackson-Urueña (BFA 19), Nadia Muhammad (BFA 20), Emara Neymour-Jackson (BFA 20), Liessa Son (BFA 21), Jasmin Sugar (BFA 19), Im Vorapharuek (BFA 19) and Kevin Zambrano (BFA 18).
Chamblas and Frilet are currently submitting “One Another” to film festivals.
