This dance-focused short film may feature choreographic movement as its subject, but the agency of the camera is the main focus here.

But most effective is the way Dyrschka and her DP, Alicja Pahl a…, explore the canvases themselves: gliding across the surface, bringing details into focus, all with a strong sense of discovery and awe. They let the pieces wash over the viewer, with their brand-new geometries and spirals beyond the bounds of time. ….' -Beyond the Visible - by Sheri Linden - The Hollywood Reporter - April 2020 - '…the film as a piece of cinema itself is also a gorgeous thing, with plentiful landscapes, establishing shots and nuanced studio reenactment sequences all shot with luminous, sensitive and painterly cinematography by Alicja Pahl…' - Beyond the Visible - by Shana NYS Dambrot - LA WEEKLY - April 2020 - Contact Alicja Pahl alicjapahl@gmail.com +41 76 690 29 11
