Krishnas Dancer
DVCpro, 16min
ein Film von Dirk Hilbert

Kasturi Mishra lernt seit über 20 Jahren die traditionelle Form des Kathak-Tanzes - unter Anleitung ihres Vaters. Wie viel Disziplin und Ausdauer dazu nötig sind, vermittelt diese Kurzdokumentation in Schwindel erregenden Bildern. (arte)

A homage to the Kathak culture, which is a young, vivid dance culture, the roots of which lie in a time that could count as ancient. A young girl carries on the ancient tradition.

The prize for the best documentary went to "Krishna´s Dancer", directed by Dirk Hilbert. "The jury spotted one of the real highlights of screen dance 2007 and certainly one of the favourites of this year's jury. This is where true documentary making and dance film come together. With music and rhythm in the editing, the jury learned to know a touching and devoted young female dance artist. Emotional and playful, this film is like a small but beautiful little gift." (Jury)
