Movie Info

Regardless of the differences in where we live or how we look, all human beings share the experience of rhythm and music. 'Pulse: a Stomp Odyssey' takes us on a world tour of music, rhythm and dance. From the sound of a Native American drum echoing off the canyon walls of New Mexico to the thunderous Kodo drum in Japan, from the percussion of the South African Gumboot Dancers to the grace of Eva la Yerbabuena's flamenco dance, 'Pulse' takes us on a journey of 10 thousand miles and five

It's a brave attempt to tap into the heartbeat of the world, a salute to the universal language of rhythm and a zippy sampling of sounds.

The diversity of the artists represented, both in terms of style and ethnicity, prevents the proceedings from feeling repetitious, as does the appropriately brief 40-minute running time.

The camera soars above the globe in dazzling panoramic shots that make the most of the large-screen format, before swooping down on a string of exotic locales, scooping the whole world up in a joyous communal festival of rhythm.

Most of the performers are amateurs. They practice their art for the love of it, and it's easy to love them for it.

As soon as it's over you're tempted to buy another ticket and watch it all over again.

A colorful, vibrant introduction to a universal human impulse, lushly photographed and beautifully recorded.

The film is impressive for the sights and sounds of the wondrous beats the world has to offer.

The large-format film is well suited to capture these musicians in full regalia and the incredible IMAX sound system lets you feel the beat down to your toes.

Though of particular interest to students and enthusiast of international dance and world music, the film is designed to make viewers of all ages, cultural backgrounds and rhythmic ability want to get up and dance.
