Overall Jury Statement:
“There is great integrity and dedication to the two works we have chosen for the first and second prize; they are works that mesh the cinematic and choreographic elements to take you to a specific space for the duration. Both winning films stand out for their skill and craft across the aspects of filmmaking and choreography, and feature performances beyond the theatrical, which communicate powerfully with the audience.”
VECINAS WINS CINEDANS AWARD FOR BEST DANCE FILM 2018
BE | 2015 | 11’ /Director/Choreographer NATALIA SARDI
Synopsis: Two lonely women are brought together by laws of magnetic attraction. A disturbing film shot on 16mm.
“Vecinas is a carefully considered work which leaves space for the spectator to fill in the narrative. There is a concreteness in the image and an elusiveness in its readability. The film offers a clear choreographic proposition, created for the camera delivered with lightness and a wry sense of humour. The sound design brings us into the characters’ world and experience – we can feel and hear the texture of the space. The lighting is an integral part of the image, sculpting space, body, sound and light to create a palpable physicality. The editing creates a deliberate yet organic pace.
“As a jury we particularly valued that Vecinas deals in a non-commercial aesthetic, avoiding the language of advertising and video clips and instead connects to art movements and art house cinema. It stretches the boundaries of the form to create an addition to the canon of dance film.”
