). 

Written by Damien Manivel and Julien Dieudonné, the story revolves around the solo composition, “Mother”, which was created by the legendary dancer Isadora Duncan following the death of her two children in April 1913. It sees a mother, in a moment of great tenderness, caressing and cradling her child for the very last time before finally letting him/her go. In 2018, four women encounter this dance piece: a dancer who tries to interpret the solo and finds herself deeply moved, a choreographer who prepares an adaptation of the piece, which will be danced by a teenager with Down’s syndrome, and an elderly lady who attends a performance of the solo alone and is subsequently moved to tears.

Produced by MLD Films (the filmmaker’s own firm), in co-production with the JeonJu Cinema Project and in association with Arte/Cofinova, Isadora's Children has received support from the Ile-de-France region. Cinematography comes courtesy of the young and promising newcomer, Noé Bach (Just Kids). Distribution in France and international sales will both be overseen by Shellac.
