A Film about Anna Halprin by Ruedi Gerber

BREATH MADE VISIBLE is the first feature documentary about the life and career of Anna Halprin. The film takes its audience from Halprin’s initial explorations of dance in her childhood to the experimental performances conducted on a dance deck under Californian redwood trees, through her spectacular tours in Europe, her withdrawal from the stage due to illness, and, finally, her triumphant return. At the heart of the film is Anna’s relationship to her husband and world renowned architect, Lawrence Halprin, which allows the film to transcend the medium of dance, just as Anna’s work does, to become a universal tale about survival and expression.
