For some it is just an ordinary party snack, but for Patrick, a tortilla chip started a moment of self-discovery. With exuberant dancing and magical passion he shares his inspiration and invites every one to participate. Even his mother.
With the score by award-winning composer Ralf Hildenbeutel, this truly original and entertaining film (e.g. winner of the Dioraphte Cinedans Jury Award and at the San Francisco Dance Film Festival) explores the concept of spontaneous authenticity – through tortilla chips and dance.
In my career so far as a filmmaker I have recognized time and again that my strongest works have emerged out of a combination of spontaneity and intuition.
In film it is the visual aesthetic qualities, the music and often a passing moment that moves me and makes me tick. Accordingly I wanted with this project to create an authentic expression of positivity and allow the audience to feel the tangible energy created by the authenticity from the actors and my passion for music, dance and rhythmic editing.
