Ten Meter Tower by Maximilien Van Aertryck & Axel Danielson

Click on the above link to visit http://www.digg.com for this mesmerising and beautiful film from the New York Times – a little over 16 minutes – of people approaching the edge of a 10 metre diving board. There is so much here, in expressive, emotional, relational terms. The human spirit in motion, under pressure; our responses to our judgments of ourselves and the perceived judgments of others; what in us wants to expand, and what in us may say ‘not yet’ or ‘not now’ or ‘not this’; how able we are to listen to ourselves and each other; how we make (and live through) our choices; how we find our ‘yes’ and our ‘no’ and our ‘fuck this’; our moments of surrendering to the fall or the stepping away….

Watch. You won’t regret it.
