FEMINA–a three-part dance film– explores women’s connection to place, identity, and body. While simultaneously imagining women in the past, present, and future tense, this film intertwines technology and challenges notions of female power or lack thereof. Braids the body stories of three women of distinct cultures and land, coming together to uplift themselves and reclaim their bodies. The film unveils women as the goddess of nature, ever-present, ever-powerful.
