Something spectacularly beautiful & horribly cruel

‘Why We Fight?’ is directed by one of Belgium’s most famous choreographers Alain Platel, together with the photographer Myriam Devriendt. Through the vision of 3 dancers, and linking the body to the mind, the film tries to understand violence outside in the world but also inside ourselves. Using various types of imagery and visual metaphors, the film analyses social change, the lack of emotional processing and the power of humanity, which always seems to balance between creating something spectacularly beautiful and something horribly cruel.
