Feature length documentary (In production)
‘Curious Skin’ is a documentary film about dance artist Tero Saarinen. For Tero, dancing is being, a way of making sense of one’s existence in the world. The film follows his work from Seoul to Paris and Helsinki. The documentary sheds light on Tero, soon to be fifty, as well as his personality and thoughts in a situation where his body is changing and the centre of work is moving from dancing to choreography and directing. When Tero is losing his talent to perform, will he also lose the ability to live in the moment?
