CHASSÉ by Michella Bredahl - 2019, 31’
Chassé is a picturesque look on a group of women and their experiences with neglect and love. The film uses the form of a diary to depict their inner and most intimate thoughts on childhood and hope. The dance is their sanctuary - they use it to arm themselves against the reality they live in. The young women long for love, but the dark side in which destructiveness can feel like a cleansing, threatens. When love has always been accompanied by neglect, how does one learn to love? The Spanish narrator, who knows both sides, guides us through the darkness. Produced by Pernille Tornøe and National Film School of Denmark.
North American Premiere. Michella Bredahl in person.
