- MARI -
Boldly combining the power of dance and cinema, MARI tells the story of professional dancer and choreographer Charlotte (Bobbi Jene Smith), as she prepares for a new show. Uniquely using the poetic expression of dance to drive the narrative, Charlotte’s world is turned upside down when she discovers she’s pregnant and her grandmother Mari is coming to the end of life, forcing her to confront her past to choose the future she wants.
MARI was commissioned through the Film London, BFI & BBC Films' Microwave scheme. Its world premiere was at the 62nd BFI London Film Festival and will be released in UK cinemas on June 21st.
