The Embroideresses

Two dancers try to approach previous generations of Swedish women by trying to understand their craft, embroidery. To translate embroidery into dance. What exactly is a cross stitch and can you really walk with a thread? The film follows the two dancers when they dry to develop an embroidery dance performance. Their process is interspersed with interviews with three embroiderers who talk about their love for the craft and the difficulties of making the perfect stitch
