Claire Denis b. 1948
Vers Mathilde (2004)
Duration: 83 minutes

Vers Mathilde is a silent meeting of two creative women. Claire Denis, filmmaker, films the bodies and their language in close up. Mathilde Monnier, choreographer, uses movement, extending beyond the dance form, to seek out new windows onto life. Their meeting reflects a strong, close working relationship and Claire Denis’ desire to further explore the mystery of movement. «I wanted to capture what happens when the body starts working; to try and catch the work in progress.»
