In this short film, Margie Gillis becomes the very embodiment of modern dance - she steps into the light, lifts her arms and unleashes her extraordinary mane into the air.

Four decades into a remarkable career, Gillis is a beacon of compassion and creativity. Watch as high-speed cameras capture the delicate and savage joy of Canada's own Isadora Duncan.

Produced by the National Film Board of Canada in co-operation with the National Arts Centre and the Governor General's Performing Arts Awards Foundation on the occasion of the 2011 Governor General's Performing Arts Awards.

    WOW ! This works on so many levels !Love the start really connected with dancer then as sensuality of piece dawned on me together with perfect voice over i was entranced !Thank you for this gift of pure dance !Once saw Imperial Japanese Kok Orchestra at R.A.Hall Proms with fantastiv Japanese dancer in fantastic Kimono outfit -not wrapped round her just hung on her !This reminded me of the free flowing dance she displayed,controlled but,so free and sensual !More is less for those who do not get it ,watch with your heart not your brain ,we are not androids ,the heart has a brain as well !

    I don't know... you take away Gillis's trademark faux-celtic-goddess slow-motion hair tossing and what's left in the film? Vacuous musings on why people aren't nice anymore? Hello? Could we at least have seen a few actual dance steps?
