In ancestral cultures, dance is the core, a kind of sacred medicine. Dance is grounded, connected the spirit of Mother Earth. Unless you surrender to the dance you can’t hunt quietly. It is an integral part of human existence. It should be possible to translate from the traditional essence to the contemporary world. Dance is the universal language. It is our human identity, our souls in celebration. Dance is the universal cure.”

About the Filmmaker – Sebastian Avila

Movement and musicality, I have always been generated expectations and interest by audiovisual language, such as transcend and evolve the artistic aesthetic doing the symbol and image dialogs that are universal eloquently.

It was pleasure of photography, film and the music that did immerse myself in the sound, as it is a direct way that tells and sets kind of discourse subjective and conceptual artist in any area, where the image couldn’t communicate the same way.

Always interested on images, sounds and the movement of those.

Sebastian Avila.
