Landing on Feathers,
short film, 24 Min
In may 2021 we began a creative research together with Elmer Kouwenberg, a visual artist, whose body had been paralyzed due to a car accident 28 years ago.
As artists and care-workers we took our practices into this physical research to explore movement, from and with limitations.
The film is an attempt to empower the aspect of togetherness, experiencing different bodies and identities beyond their status quo by inviting them to a space of giving and receiving.
