Over the past seven decades, Anna Halprin has redefined the meaning of modern dance. Breath made visible is the first feature-length documentary about her life and work. The film takes viewers from Anna Halprin's early childhood dance explorations to experimental performances on the dance stage beneath California redwood trees. This cinematic journey takes her through her spectacular performances in Europe, her retirement from the stage and her illness to her triumphant comeback at the age of 80. Previously unpublished archival footage expands the personal portrait into a gripping portrayal of what was at the heart of political and social art-making in North America. At the heart of the film is Anna Halprin's relationship with her husband, architect Lawrence Halprin (Roosewelt Memorial), making the film a universal story about survival and the arts - well beyond dance.
