A Battling Body


A Battling Body (A Corps Battant) is the story of a fight : a one minute choreography to illustrate a whole life, a young life,  hampered by multiple sclerosis , stopped in its tracks by violent and unpredictable outbreaks. A musical and poetic short film to talk about the disease another way.

Information for the Audience: 

A BATTLING BODY was so important to me, to make a film about a so unknown and still widespread disease. My aunt died from MS 6 years ago after years of fighting it, and i wanted to honor her and help raising awareness about it. I put so much of myself in this project, to spread it as much as possible.
