Beyond Voluntary Control (2000) VHS NTSC, color, 30 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: Dance, Psychology & Mental Health

BEYOND VOLUNTARY CONTROL conveys the experience of psychological and physical confinement. Through a surreal montage of haunting images from diverse sources, a sense of the obsessions, phobias, and diseases that constrict personal freedom is tellingly communicated. Dancer David Figueroa contributes his original and evocative movements to the mix. A soundtrack with poems by Emily Dickinson and Sharon Olds escorts the visual, and an interview with the filmmaker's mother poignantly underscores the latter's struggle with Parkinson's disease.- Lock yourself in, then let yourself go.
