Directed by Beatriz Mediavilla, winner of FIFA’s Best Canadian Film Award in 2021, this dance film explores what is universal in all of us. Regardless of our skin colour, origins, gender, or age, we are all bodies in motion. This short film presents three choreographies, created in situ in Abitibi-Témiscamingue, that explore Newtons laws of movement and the way they are common to everyone.

Béatriz Mediavilla

Multidisciplinary artist, Béatriz Mediavilla was born in 1972, in Rouyn-Noranda, where she still lives today. That’s where she had her first encounter with dance. This art form will be in all her artistic approach.
Holder of a bachelor’s degree and a master’s degree in film studies, she teaches cinema at the Abitibi-Témiscamingue College. In parallel to her teaching, Mediavilla has accomplished other works, including the multidisciplinary collective work Ce qu’il en reste : dialogue artistique sur la mort (2009). She published Des Espagnols à Palmarolle found in Nouvelles Explorations (2010) and Contes, légendes et récits de l’Abitibi-Témiscamingue (2011), and she also published Entre les heures in Rouyn-Noranda Littéraire (2013). Danse avec elles, her first full-length documentary, was given great praise, and was presented in many festivals such as Montréal, Quebec City, Toronto and Vancouver, but also in Havana and New York City.
Then she directed two dance experimental short films, 3 Movements of outtake and Still feel you with me, witch also had a great world festival career. With her most recent feature film, According to movement, a story in ten chapters, she offers a new way of approaching the codes of documentary and dance. The film won, among others, the Best Canadian Work award at the Festival International des Films sur l’Art de Montréal, the Best dance documentary at the Fine Art Film Festival in Venice Beach, California and the First place documentary feature in Utah.
