Jorge León

Before We Go (Belgium 2014, 82min)

Part of "The Power of Powerlessness"

82 Min

Three people near the end of their lives meet with choreographers, such as Meg Stuart and Simone Aughterlony, actors and musicians at the opera house in Brussels. They take part in a unique experience involving music, dance and silence in an attempt to give shape to the questions, hopes and fears that the end of life gives rise to. Jorge León’s film is a tribute to the fragility of the human condition, between reality and representation, the tragedy of the body and the freedom of the spirit.
