More Than You Think (Vanessa Michielon & Jacopo Landi. Italy.) 1:05 min.
For Mihaly Czsikszentmihalyi, flow is the optimal experience, the sense of seemingly effortless movement. “More than you think” explores the internal invisible dimension of a dancer, her immersion in a state of enhanced perception but also her struggle to escape overthinking. Indeed, the flow experience involves a lack of the sense of worry about losing control: in this merging of action and awareness, ”there is no need to reflect, because the action carries us forward as if by magic”. Year of production: 2013.
