Whole Wall Films / Boglárka Börcsök The Art of Movement – Trailer

In her film, the young Hungarian dancer and performer Boglárka Börcsök encounters three elderly Hungarian women, all above the age of 90 years: Éva E. Kovács, Irén Preisich and Ágnes Roboz were part of the Art of Movement that emerged at the beginning of the 20th century from a mix of dance and gymnastics today referred to as Modern Dance.

Börcsök retraces how each of these women resisted, reformed, and transformed their lives and dance practices in order to survive the major social transformations of the last century; the rise and command of nationalism and socialism and the consequent banning of the Art of Movement.
