Dancinema 2022: Walking to Birth (Belgium)

Walking to Birth is a short dance film in which a heavily pregnant woman searches for a place to bring her baby into the world.

The film is set in a forest with large trees.
She is directed by nature from one place to another.
By moving she is helping the child in her womb to find the way to earth.
She walks and dances with roots, trunks and branches of the trees.
They serve as a foothold, as resistance and support.
When her water breaks, it starts to rain.
The time has come.
