How She Moves, a documentary directed by Aisha Linnea and Anya Raza, will be making its Turkish premiere at the Foça International Archaeology and Cultural Heritage Documentary Film Days in Izmir, Turkey from October 20 to 26.

This year’s theme is ‘But is it Local? Local Culture and World Heritage.’

The film is about Indu Mitha, a 90-year-old Bharatanatyam dance teacher from Pakistan as she prepares for her final dance performance in Islamabad. This film explores the transformative impact of her teaching, though it is not an “ethnographic representation of her dance work,” according to the filmmakers, rather, it is based on their “own interpretation” of her style.

How She Moves will be screening live on October 21 and will feature a Q&A with the directors and dancer/choreographer Tehreema Mitha, the daughter of Indu Mitha.

Since the film’s release in October 2021, How She Moves has toured over 15 festivals, won the Excellence in Short Documentary Filmmaking Award at the Asian American International Film Festival and Best International Documentary at Regina International Film Festival & Awards, the Impact Award at Dance Camera North as well as an Honourable Mention at Women’s Voices Now. How She Moves will travel on to the San Francisco Dance Film Festival at the end of October.
