El SÉPTIMO SENTIDO – I am a dancer.


Being ignored is worse than somebody hating you.

Dance documentary that accompanies 3 passionate female Spanish dance-artists across Europe:
What is the value of Art in our current times of crisis and shortenings?
Avatâra (choreographer), Eugenia (ballet teacher) and Alejandra (dancer) talk about the decision to either leave home and building up a new life in UK or Germany
or staying in Spain and also starting from zero.
A movie about friendship, passion, coherence and lonesome struggles, depending on each other to survive as artists, the desire to have a home and the absolute will to be perceived – a very personal insight against the background of the current unstable situation in Europe: migration of artists, shortenings of fundings, the current gender-debate in the UK.
