All our will, our wishes, our hope cannot stop this.
Anamnesis visits the volatility of memory within the mind of an elderly woman. It considers aging and loss, and the ways in which dancing or movement is remembered and forgotten. How is it that humans might carry relationships through time?
In the film, the artists—Cormac Lally (videography), David Corbet (sound), Bagryana Popov (dramaturgy) and Simon Ellis (direction/choreography)—seek to represent the biographical confusion and uncertainty of the woman (performed by Liz Jones) as the arc of the film becomes increasingly lucid.
