Re:Born is a short dance film about getting up and reappropriating the body. It is an intimate and fragile journey beautifully told by choreographer and creator Annemijn Rijk.

The jury of Multiplié about Re:Born:
"To a film that is well-produced, daring and has invested a lot in the details. Based on a singular concept, the idea is fully implemented, with a high level of perseverance. The film offers a unique presence and a raw expression that evokes associations with something extraterrestrial but at the same time very human and realistic. The film allows for different interpretations, but it carries with it an abstract message of hope through adversity, transformation and continuous evolvement."
