weakness of the flesh

Weakness of the Flesh is a film by Kevin McGloughlin and Jacob Jonas that uses relatively simple animation to duplicate and people the solo dance performer Emma Rosenzweig-Bock.

I like this film a lot and it strikes me that what gives it its gravitas is almost entirely the photography, editing and animation (oh, and the sound!). The choreography is rather generic contemporary dance in how it moves the dancer in and out the floor, the sense of effort in the body, and the folding and unfolding of Rosenzweig-Bock’s limbs and torso.
