Editorial Reviews

Set to poetic texts, often to excellent music by his long time collaborator Sylvi Alli, these films show Alli's command of film editing and visual language, and his ability to draw performances of deeply grounded power from dancers and actors, to create visions which are indeed loaded with the ability to evoke deep longings, exaltations, cultural memories, and altered spiritual states.
