At Arm’s Length

Inspired freely by David Albert-Toth and Emily Gualtieris choreographic creation À bout de bras presented this fall at the Agora, this film shot outside shows us a character interpreted in a more intimate way. A man overcome by loneliness and guilt tries to leave everything behind. As he travels through increasingly desolate landscapes, he realizes that he cannot escape from himself. A visceral and stark portrait relieved by occasional bursts of color, humor, and hope.
