Movement and sound archive
A film for Grace Schwindt, a German artist living in London who works with performance, film, music, and sculpture.
"Movement and sound archive" is the title of the project.
A quote from the artist's statement:

I want to dismantle the idea of ‘tolerance’, where some claim to be in a position to tolerate from a distance and from above, and others are assumed to be in need to be tolerated. Instead, I want to propose and insist on the necessity for direct touch between individuals, a touch that invites closeness without the need to explain oneself and to allow being affected by each other.
