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 film (e.g. winner of the Dioraphte Cinedans Jury Award, the highest award for dance films worldwide) explores the concept of spontaneous authenticity – through tortilla chips and dance.
Momentum has been broadcasted in Televion in Germany, Sweden and the UK.

Momentum delivers a highly original and side-splitting take on the transformative power of dance, using the filming and editing techniques of MTV-style music videos but with far more subtlety and imagination, and an irresistible streak of lunacy.THE HUFFINGTON POST
