Mari, from writer-director Georgia Parris and producer Emma Duffy, will bring original choreography to the big screen as it follows contemporary dancer Charlotte on a personal journey that goes from her grandmother’s deathbed to the prospect of motherhood.
“I spent a weekend with my family around my grandmother’s hospital bed... Being with her when she died had a big effect on me as the notion of my own mortality crept in and led me to write 'Mari' to understand my own feelings better... Wim Wenders’ documentary 'Pina' changed everything for me, I saw the potential of contemporary dance to explore narrative – it has the ability to bypass spoken word and allows you to physicalize complex human emotions in a very dynamic way.” Georgia Parris
