Critic Reviews for Breath Made Visible: Anna Halprin
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.
Audience Reviews for Breath Made Visible: Anna Halprin
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.
