She is a film adaptation of a solo dance performance of the same name. The original work created and performed by Dorotea Saykaly was presented to the general public in 2019. Inspired by Clarice Lispectors The Passion According to G.H., the solo revolved around identity and doubt. This adaptation was born during the first COVID lockdown in 2020, a collaboration between Dorotea Saykaly and director Emil Dam Seidel. A brilliant short dance film that mixes fiction and choreography under the musical direction of Montreal composer Louis Dufort.
