Official Selection Film Spotlight
Blind Dreamers / Texas & Korean Premiere / France / 6:17
A visual fable with poetic notes that oscillate between reality and surrealism to reveals a universe mixing plastic, landscape and poetry. We discover a couple looking like René Magritte's lovers who have exchanged their veil against a plastic bag. In research of sensitivity, this video fable question our rupture with the rest of the living world and our (in)ability to identify with it. We are this living being caught in a trap: how could we forget about it?
What do you hope to communicate with our audience through your work?
Through my work I hope to touch and awake our sensitivity about the living world all around us.
Dancer, Choreographer and Filmmaker, Sandra is a hybrid dancer and artist fascinated by movement research and by the body's ability to adapt to different styles, energies and aesthetics, which continues to push her mixture of techniques further. When she starts working alongside Wim Vandekeybus, she links contemporary and physical theater (dance theater). These remain integral elements of her work today. Passionate since a young age about photography and video, she is developing her audiovisual work and her artistic identity between surrealism and poetry. In 2019, this led to the founding of her own company, "&cø" company: a plural approach implementing both different aesthetics and different techniques. In her work, we can find a relationship to the image, to the theatricality of the body, and to the sensitive world of movement, of the moment and of nothing. In 2022 she directed her first film, “Blind Dreamers,” and she is currently working on her next short film.
