OBSESSED WITH LIGHT
NORTH AMERICAN PREMIERE Loïe Fuller was a master dancer of the early 20th century whose use of fabric and light created stunning visuals that influenced many in art and fashion. Directors Sabine Krayenbühl and Zeva Oelbaum create a visual poem that pays homage to Fuller’s specific artistic achievement. Mixing a kaleidoscope of entrancing images with the wise words of fashion designer Iris van Herpen and artist William Kentridge, among others, this documentary unfolds like her dancing: There’s always something breathtaking to marvel at. – Murtada Elfadl
