For Those Who Struggle With Life
"For Those Who Struggle With Life." - A collaboration between founding Ballet Black dancer & actor Jake Nwogu and Filmmaker & Director Dan Lowenstein, with Music by Mad EP
During a difficult period of my life, I had a series of panic attacks, to a point that my body shook uncontrollably. Sometimes I was so broken that I couldn't focus my mind, and other times my mind worked but the shaking continued. I asked Film Maker Daniel Lowenstein to capture one of these episodes.
The symptoms in this film are genuine and I continued to shake between takes. However, I managed to use the shaking to inform some of the movement.
With the awful moments comes amazing life lessons.
Therefore life is always amazing, even if it doesn't seem to be at the time. - Jake Nwogu
