S Y N O P S I S:

WATERMARK combines the unique choreographic skills of Jiri Kylian, the intense and personal performers of NDT3 and the vision of filmmaker Margaret Williams. The film marks Jiri Kylian's first venture into choreographing specifically for the camera.Shot on 16mm film with a specially composed score and music from Vivaldi.

WATERMARK is filmed on locations (both wet and dry) around The Hague including the huge white atrium of the Town Hall. The performers, described by Kylian as 'aged between forty and death,' bring a wealth of experience and great spirituality to the film.

A waterfall of heads, a ripple of goldfish, an underwater tango and a soul lost at sea. WATERMARK is a film full of love and pathos, humour and humanity.
