Powerful, probing, and provocative, Marion Woodman: Dancing in the Flames is an insightful documentary that explores the inspiring life and many ‘deaths’ of one of the western world’s most important thinkers.
A sell-out audience recently at the Vancouver International Film Festival’s Canadian Theatrical Premiere, and the U.S. premiere this past weekend was also a sold-out screening at New York City’s Rubin Museum Theatre.
A feminist icon, poet and Jungian analyst, Woodman has performed provocative thought-experiments on the nature of death and consciousness since recovering from cancer in the early ‘90s.
Gabriella Martinelli of Capri Films brings us this feature documentary, produced by Robin Crumley of Capri Vision Productions and directed by Adam Greydon Reid. Marion Woodman: Dancing in the Flames incorporates stunning thematic animation from Academy Award-winning artist Faith Hubley which is seamlessly woven throughout the thought provoking interviews with Woodman.
The film – narrated and “guided” by the brilliant mystic and author Andrew Harvey – also prominently features Marions’s husband Ross Woodman. Through these interviews, Marion explains the mysteries of her soul’s journey and reveals a series of psychological ‘deaths’ and ‘rebirths’ that have formed the consciousness into which she has evolved. From her battle with anorexia, to her revelatory experiences in India, to her ever-evolving marriage, to her dance with cancer, Marion has ‘died into life’ and, thus, is a perfect teacher and mid-wife for this critical period in our history. Her inner and outer lives combine to communicate a core truth of what it is to be human.
