“The sensation of our own movement and the perception of movement in the world around us are very primal experiences from early infancy. It is in this world of movement (the kinesthetic experience) that film and dance make their most exciting and unique contributions.” —Hilary Harris

“This tour de force captures a simple dance movement repeated via variations of camera work and editing. Hilary Harris literally spins circles around the dancer, encircling her in fluid movements and jump cuts. The precise movements of the dancer and filmmaker synthesize into a dazzling artistic creation. The result is an intimate view of artistic creation as it unfolds on screen.” —Bruce Posner
