BLOOM

BLOOM is short, narrative dance film, which explores the conflict between the desire to go back to the innocence and dream state of childhood and the need to accept the adult world for what it is, no matter how cruel or ugly at times.

    Anderson’s Anima meets Deren’s Meshes of the Afternoon meets Glazer's Strasbourg 1518 = BLOOM. 

    Exploring the realm of cinema outside of commercial interests and verbal narration BLOOM aims to tell the story only through dance, lighting techniques, costumes, and soundscapes.

    CREW

    Meet the Director and Producer, Isabel Belić

    What Isabel offers to the London art scene, her being of a diverse background, half Croatian, and half Kurdish from Turkmenistan, is a sensual approach to film. 

    Isabel has directed experimental and narrative short films, successfully screening her works in festivals like Saatchi’s Gallery International Student Moving Image Showcase and ROS Film Festival. Apart from directing, Isabel has experience in a variety of other roles, including Assisting Directing, and Illustrating. Currently, at Ravensbourne University, she cultivates her growing love for haptic storytelling, performance art, and film distribution.

    SUPPORTING UKRAINIAN CHILDREN 

    Image

    With the support of our Ukrainian child-dancer Maria Panchuk, we hope that this project will also help to raise awareness of how children can suffer from the decisions made by adults, reflecting the current war outbreak in Ukraine. To support children and families whose lives are being torn apart, we have collaborated with the charity foundation “The Voices of Children” (БФ «Голоси дітей») to help raise funds for Ukrainian children and provide them all the things necessary for a safe and healthy childhood.

    We are planning to organize a charity event at Ravensbourne University London. For further details about the dates and the event, follow us on Instagram: @bloomfilmoffical
