A Movement of Movement: the Essence of Pilates
is a documentary film about the philosophy, lifestyle, movement, and world of Pilates, examined through the lens of non-fiction cinema to create a blend of reality and art. It captures the true essence of Pilates, beginning with the creator, Joseph Pilates, and follows the growth of the movement as expressed through the eyes of elders, world renowned Pilates instructors, and everyday people who have been transformed by the method.
Almost every lifestyle, sport, and activity has that one film that brings everyone together. Whether it’s to remind them why they love what they do, or to inspire new people to become a part of the community, that film provides an everlasting source of inspiration. That is what A Movement of Movement
is. We are living in a historical movement, a phenomenon of human experience. Pilates has changed the world. The movement
is about us, it’s about today, and it’s about exploring our full potential.
