Dirty Bill Of Health

a narrative film in English

A stranger on a road trip stops in for a random medical check up looking for everything but a clean bill of health. "...Dirty Bill Of Health is an inspired fanatic of the classic 50′s ‘Hitchcock Presents’ series. A touch of dark humored cat and mouse, laced with subtle clues from the second it begins. The film attempts to challenge the audience as to where the hero’s are and what their end game is."
Starring James Tyce (Minority Report, Arrow, Almost Human, No Tell Motel), Casey Manderson (Witches of East End, Once Upon A Time in Wonderland, Cinemanovels), Tirra Dent (Glass, The Evil in Us, Demons In The Dark) and Cynthia Potvin (Da Vinci's Inquest, The Hard Cut).

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
