A lovely dance piece about mental health and the power of movement by San Francisco-based director Adam Dillon. Featuring dancer Jayden Russell, the project emerged from Dillon’s own personal experience with anxiety and panic attacks. Even after recovering from the illness that brought them on, he never forgot the feeling. As Dillon explains: “This is film is my interpretation of what it’s like to have a panic attack, ultimately to get through it you have to dance with it.”
