Navina Neverla



„It doesn’t actually matter through which medium you are expressing something – what is important is the merging of something within myself with what I do. That these aren’t two disparate things anymore. Not: Okay, I am doing this movement – but I AM THIS MOVEMENT.“
Jesse Webb, Protagonist of Moveo ergo sum 


“In her essayistic documentary Navina investigates via peotic images and a calm and precise cinematography, through a polyphony of voices, the healing effect of movement on the human soul.”
Prof. for Visual Communication: Udo Engel, at HFBK Academy of fine Arts, Hamburg
