Animaze Daze in Cannes selection: Variations on Breathing by Kate Vrijmoet


A film by
Pascal Le Boeuf (2004 Winner in Music) | music
JeanCarlo Ramirez (2012 Winner in Cinematic Arts) | producer, director
Kate Vrijmoet (1984 Winner in Visual Arts) | painting
Featuring Katy Short (2013 Winner in Dance) | improvised movement

How can we embrace our true selves amid an ocean of false social constructs and unconscious biases? Borrowing from Vrijmoet’s “Non-Ordinary Reality” painting series and Le Boeuf's compositions for prepared piano, “Variations on Breathing” leads the viewer from the deep sleep of unknowing through a physical and moral struggle to free the self. Metaphors for transformation are explored through the lens of Ramirez's immersive maximalist cinematography, improvised movement, the shedding of aqueous skin, and the transition from full immersion in water to surfacing for air.

Produced by the National YoungArts Foundation
