THIS IS ME: LETTERS FROM THE FRONT LINES

2020 Premiere

THIS IS ME: LETTERS FROM THE FRONT LINES is a dance film exploring how the current climate of isolation has encouraged us to look within ourselves. We follow the paths of military veterans and first responders as they share what it means to be a true warrior - to be on the front lines - and fight the invisible enemy that all humanity is currently battling. At a time when most have been asked to halt and withdraw, others, like soldiers, are charging forward.  "This is Me" Letters From The Front Lines captures the resilience, determination and hope of the human spirit.

 

Directed & Choreographed by Jacques Heim

THIS IS ME: Letters from the Front Lines is dedicated to all the Veterans for their service, commitment and sacrifice and to all of our COVID-19 First Responders for their dedication, selflessness, and resilience.
