  • Over My Dead Body

    2011. Canada. Directed by Brigitte Poupart. With David St-Pierre. St-Pierre, a Montreal dancer-turned-choreographer, has cystic fibrosis. When shooting began on this film he was 34, and had been told by his doctors that unless he underwent a lung transplant in the next several months he would probably be dead by 37. His dances, informed by his illness, confront themes of physical frailness, vulnerability, and nakedness. Poupart chronicles St-Pierre's struggle as he continues to work and waits—and waits some more—for the donor lung that could keep him alive. Print courtesy of Coop Video. In French; English subtitles. 80 min.
