The film sees two performers dancing a pas de deux, filmed on high contrast film stock with very stark side lighting. This is augmented by step-and-repeat printing on an optical printer. This gives the film an almost stroboscopic appearance..

There are times in this film that I adore the primitive beauty of dance, and there are times when the human form becomes something more like a flower, or even a liquid. So simple and so beautiful--the lines of motion the body can create. It's more than a film.
