‘Sons Of The New World’ is a short dance film that we co-produced to promote the new album of Belgium’s most famous jazz pianist Jef Neve.
Senne Dehandschutter: In this short film I explored the idea of ‘move to move’. Many people don’t move out of love for life or love for the horizon, but out of fear to stand still and as a result be confronted with themselves. They run at high speed around their axis, building up frustrations. In ‘Sons Of The New World’ people break through this circular motion. It starts with one girl: she stops, looks up and sees the world for the first time. She reconnects with herself and feels the intense urge to be alive again. What starts with one girl eventually affects everyone.
