REVIEWS
"Shot in what could pass for a prison cell, Momentum, by Boris Seewald, delivers a highly original and side-splitting take on the transformative power of dance, using the filming and editing techniques of MTV-style music videos but with far more subtlety and imagination, and an irresistible streak of lunacy. Starting with a simple but hilarious premise involving a tortilla chip, the film celebrates the magnetic Patrick Hanna, a young dancer with a mischievous twinkle in his eye, who entices his middle-aged mother, played by Shoko Ito, into his surreal dance world."
Huffington Post

“Taking a simple story with a universal message and injecting it with energy and warmth, Seewald has created a short film bound to inspire and entertain its audience.”
Short Of The Week

“Momentum is not just an ode to dancing passion, it’s a way of life, a way of living every bit of it.
Epic Short Films

“The film is a fresh and surprising celebration of dance: the fun and enthusiasm radiate from there.”
Cinedans – Dance on Screen

“Inventive, original, honest, and witty, Momentum has great energy and refreshes the genre with youthful vigor. Seewald demonstrates a confident use of the film medium to convey the power and depth of the dance experience.”
San Francisco Dance Film Festival

“Boris Seewald [...] demonstrated that dance films can be hilariously entertaining.[...] It was so refreshing to see a dance film that wasn’t filled with drama and angst”
Heather Desaulniers (Dance critic and PhD in dance history)

“I really loved Momentum like a breath of un self-conscious fresh air.”
Jon Harris – Editor (Snatch, 127 Hours, Kick-Ass, Trance)

“What an engaging character! [...] incredibly polished and beautiful imagery.”
Olivia Coleman – Actress
