Charlie Clift
Beyond The Horizon

An exploration of the ups and downs of the creative process and the fruit of director Charlie Clift’s collaboration with composer Segun Akinola and choreographer Demi Rox.

Rox cuts a lone figure against the austere dunes as she combines hip hop, freestyle, and classical dance to Akinola’s cello score written for the film. She begins calm and collected, flowing over the dunes but as the music becomes increasingly frantic, so does her dance: grappling with self-doubt, struggling against the obstacles thrown her way. At the end, as the soundscape expands, she is triumphant.
