Valentina Khodnevich


The art dance film weaves the dancer's intimate portrait. His body emerges as a living canvas, and the choreography conveys a profound narrative, allowing the viewers a rare glimpse into the therapeutic nature of dance. Through the lens, we capture raw emotions in the dancer's every movement. The audience is invited to gaze at the nuanced interplay between body, emotion, and camera that unfolds in a mesmerizing dance.
