Life in Movement Trailer. Sophie Hyde, Bryan Mason‘s Life in Movement (2011) movie trailer stars Tanja Liedtke, Anton, Kristina Chan, Julian Crotti, and Amelia McQueen. Life in Movement‘s plot synopsis: “In 2007 the Sydney Dance Company appointed 29-year-old choreographer Tanja Liedtke as their first new artistic director in 30 years. However before she could take up the position, she was struck and killed by a truck in the middle of the night. Admired internationally as a dancer and celebrated for her fresh choreographic voice, she was known as a dedicated artist, intelligent, dorky, funny and generous.
18 months after her death her collaborators embark on a world tour of her work, and in the process they must deal with their grief and explore the reasons for her death. Interspersed with intimate footage of her artistic process and previously unseen interviews, Life in Movement is a film about moving creatively through life and loss. Filmmakers Bryan Mason and Sophie Hyde give us a powerfully rendered take on art and artists, creativity and our own mortality.”

Another’s view on the elements of Life in Movement‘s trailer:
Hints of Wim Wenders‘ Pina comes to mind as the sight of a dance troupe of uncommon composition fill the screen. It’s the slow drive on a empty city street at dusk that drives home for anyone who hasn’t caught on, the pull-quotes that reinforce the hints of emotion that pack the screen, that bring it full circle.
There is a sadness within the beauty here and the way the trailer is selling the film it doesn’t feel like it’s going to be a downer as it is a celebration of an artist.
