Bodies in Motion

Momentum

For some it is just an ordinary party snack, but for Patrick, a tortilla chip started a moment of self-discovery. With exuberant dancing and magical passion he shares his inspiration and invites every one to participate. Even his mother.

With the score by award-winning composer Ralf Hildenbeutel, this film explores the concept of spontaneous authenticity—through tortilla chips and dance.

"Momentum" delivers a side-splitting take on the transformative power of dance, using the filming and editing techniques of MTV-style music videos but with subtlety and imagination, and an irresistible streak of lunacy. Taking a simple story with a universal message and injecting it with energy and warmth, this short film is bound to inspire and entertain its audience.

Directed by Boris Seewald, "Momentum" has received more than 10 awards, has been played at hundreds of film festivals and broadcasted on television in Germany, Sweden, and the U.K.
