Presented by the Hong Kong City Contemporary Dance Company (CCDC), the sixth edition of the Jumping Frames International Dance Video Festival is taking place from 5 to 7 September. In this framework, French films and coproductions about dance are screened in Hong Kong:
*Back to Ominato by Satchie Noro (19 mins).
In 2013, the dancer and choreographer Satchie Noro travels back from Marseille to Ominato, Japan, on the same path her father took aboard cargo in 1961, delegated by his master to bring the martial art Aïkido to Europe and Africa. During this 42 days at the sea back to Japan, Satchie Noro shows herself dancing improvisations, as metamorphosis rituals on this journey to her origin.
*Bonhomme de vent by Sima Khatami (45 mins).
The choreographer Boris Charmatz and the actress Jeanne Balibar create an original play, La danseuse malade from texts of Tatsumi Hijikata, the founder of Butô and mythical figure of contemporary dance culture. This film follows step by step, the initial trials until the first performance, the work of two artists who immerse themselves in the bitter, hard and deep world of Hijikata.
Both films are part of the Jumping Frames International Dance Video Competition Finalist - Documentaries selection.

Show : Tuesday, September16, 2014 at 9:30pm @ The One.
*Pina (3D) by Wim Wenders, presented out of Competition at the 61st Berlin International Film Festival (103min).
Pina is a film for Pina Bausch by Wim Wenders. It’s a film danced in 3D, borne aloft by the Tanztheater Wuppertal company and the singular art of this choreographer who died in the summer of 2009.
Its images invite us on a journey to the heart of a new dimension, at first on this legendary company’s stage, then outside the theater, with the dancers, in the town of Wuppertal and the local area - this place that Pina Bausch had made her home base for 35 years and from which she drew her creative power.
Show: Wednesday September 17, 2014 at 9:40pm @ The One.
