IRIDESCENCE

Best Dance Film 2017

After being diagnosed with breast cancer in 2015, élodie turned her suffering and fears into a creative fight against the disease and the debilitating effects of the treatments used. Her latest work, Iridescence, is the personal story of her fight with cancer and the way she found to deal with the disease in a creative and hopeful manner. It’s also a way of giving back and handing on the positive vibes that she’s received from friends, family and strangers during the course of her disease.

‘There are many of us (patients, friends or family) fighting cancer with creativity. Composing, drawing, painting, writing, body art-ing etc., to prevent it from stealing our souls. So let’s share ideas and creations in order to inspire people around us, who in turn will inspire others.’
