TRAVERSEES, 4min., Canada, Experimental
Directed by Chantal Caron
Traversées is an ode to the sacred feminine: five wild women choosing community over individuality to ensure their survival. A winter immersion intertwined with shallow breaths, storms, tenderness and the ebb and flow of a river trying to free itself from ice. The short film portrays a rite of passage shrouded in movements traversing the stages of arrival, putting down roots, transformation and rebirth. Step by step, these five fierce warriors tread a path that leads to the encounter with oneself.
