RPM Festival Presents: Movement Exercises Trilogy by Sarah Friedland

Coming on November 7

Run Time: 90 min.

Post-Screening Q&A with Sarah Friedland & Homa Sarabi

RPM Festival and the Brattle Theatre are excited to announce our co-presentation of “Movement Exercises Trilogy,” a feature-length trilogy of films by filmmaker-choreographer Sarah Friedland. Movement Exercises deconstructs and revises the choreographic vocabularies of exercises practiced across home, work, and school spaces. The trilogy consists of three short films: Home Exercises (2017), Drills (2020), and Trust Exercises (2022). Movement Exercises examines the premise and promise of the exercise: that by moving together, repeatedly, we both create and recreate the social body.
