Breath Made Visible is an admiring documentary portrait of Anna Halprin, a woman so remarkable it is hard to fit her into the confines of a film, let alone a sentence.
A vivid and haunting portrait of an artist's long career, filled with snippets of dance film that make you want to see more...
It's no small feat to make a legend life-sized and accessible without dispelling her greatness and mystique, yet Gerber pulls off a delicate tightrope act with relaxed ease.
Packed with illuminating interviews and lyrical movement, Breath Made Visible portrays a woman with angels in her feet and innovation in her blood. Long may she rock.
At nearly 90 years old, an age when most people are sitting around wait ing for the Grim Reaper, envelope-pushing, modern-dance pioneer Anna Halprin is still mentally and physically spry.
So much information, context and personality is squeezed into such a succinct package that, primer or not, you're left with a strongly realized sense of who Halprin is and what she's accomplished.
She still dances beautifully, with dignity and the intensity to the marrow that takes your breath away.
An amazing woman, a less than amazing film.
Cutting-edge artists require more sure-footed guides than you'll find in Breath
A rare chance to see Anna Halprin at work over the last 50 years. Not the same as seeing her in person but close.
In the same way that listening to a clip of a song is less satisfying than grooving to the whole number, so too is a snippet of a dance number less edifying than watching the entire piece.
A fascinating, heartwarming and delightful inspiration for your mind, body and soul.
Magnificent! What an incredible woman. This film manages to capture why modern dance may be my favorite art form. I see it as using the body as the medium and space as the canvas in which the performer creates an abstraction of some aspect of life which the audience then is free to interpret in a very personal way. There were so many beautiful images in this documentary and at several times I found myself wiping away tears of pleasure at the sheer magnitude of the emotions being portrayed. I would love to own this one to remind myself that it is never too late, that one is never too old, to find beauty in nature and to express it through dance. I absolutely loved this and give it five stars!
Beautiful, inspiring documentary about dance pioneer Anna Halprin, whose free-flowing, improvisational style both scandalized and revolutionized modern dance. Examines both her life and her sources of inspiration, "Breath Made Visible" is a haunting portrait of a singular and brilliant artist.
