ARE YOU NUMB YET?
Set in a post-pandemic world where a young man, ‘Dre’ feels he’s been left behind and everyone else in the world around him seems to have moved on. Stuck in the aftermath of the Black Lives Matter movement and the COVID-19 pandemic, Dre undergoes a series of nightmares that send him on a journey to find hope through his trauma.
"For this film, we really wanted to explore the balance between poetic language and dance. We wanted the dancing to be part of the characters, not their occupation. We’ve found that characters in dance films are simply dancers which often can limit the possibilities of the storyline."
