Sky Dancer – Film by Katja Essen

I’m so excited to learn about this documentary film, which is coming to the Brooklyn Film Festival in early June.   I just ordered my ticket to see it.

Based on what I saw in the trailer, Katja Essen’s Sky Dancer actually follows a Mohawk ironworker way up on to the steel frame of a high rise building that is being raised in New York City.

I don’t handle heights very well and I did a bit of panicking while watching the trailer.  But I have such an intense interest in construction and a respect and affinity for Mohawk culture, so I’m really looking forward to seeing the film.

I love the image above too.  So beautifully done.  (Artwork by Verena Brandt)
