"Widow is the film version of a solo movement-based performance featuring an iconic, enigmatic woman encapsulated in a stark, futuristic environment. With an intense interiority the nameless woman gradually reveals the evolving mystery of her psychological condition through suspenseful stillness, sharp gestures and emotional extremes. Precisely choreographed gestures merge with layered costume, music and sound to create a shifting tableau of surreal images evocative of personal loss and the struggle for transcendence." - Jil Guyon

Widow will screen February 4, 2014, at 3PM, at the Dance On Camera Film Festival, Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, Walter Reade Theater.
