Born To Fly (feature)
Dir: Catherine Gund / 2014 / USA / 83 min / DCP
Extreme action choreographer Elizabeth Streb and her troupe live to explore new ways bodies can move in space. This film balances intense action sequences Streb has meticulously choreographed with scenes from her and wife Laura’s home life to create a portrait of this creative genius. Robert Faires of the Austin Chronicle praised the film after its premiere at SXSW writing, “Born to Fly captures fully both the danger in the work and the exhilaration the dancers get from it. Watching these athletic paragons perform gets the pulse racing, but not just from the risk; it’s seeing bodies move in ways you know they never have in human history.”
