With this combined book and DVD, film-maker, photographer, and artist Janica Draisma gives a personal account that sheds light on several of her films and projects. Draisma describes her films as “cinematographic choreographies” or “visual poems” – films without dialogue, often driven by music. Especially her early 16 mm films are studies in choreography for camera, composed of body poses and movements symbolising and expressing an emotional thrust, and with an underlying narrative line. Here, she extensively documents and reflects upon her development as artist, the themes that are characteristic of her work, and the people who inspired her.
