Jouer Trailer
This film will be presented during the event La Nuit de la danse on March 16, 2023 at Théâtre Outremont.

A dancer rambles through a dark, endless tunnel. He is struggling, but somehow he keeps going. A Long Walk is a minimalist and contemplative metaphor for life’s ups and downs. Merging reality with visual imagery, the film reflects Malaysian dancer Ong Yong Locks inner world and the persistence he demonstrated while navigating the ebbs and flows of his 30-year career.
