Fluchkes

Fluchkes ( “flabby arms” in Yiddish) follows the creation process of the dance performance Gila. A group of colorful, energetic women in their seventies and eighties bravely confront the hardships and demands of the art of dance. At the same time, these honest and conscious women openly share their personal experiences and feelings of getting old. Each one of them presents a unique personal view of aging. The film follows the group through a year of rehearsals, through moments of hardships, failures and inside intrigues as well as moments of friendship, happiness, noble beauty and great success. Finally in front of an applauding audience a truly artistic professional performance is born.
