Why does Marieke fail to connect with reliable men? Self-portrait and self-examination about fear of love, pole-dancing ambitions and the resolution to show everything in a dance about pain, hope and strength.
'Hello, I’m Marieke and I’m afraid of love.' With these opening words, photographer and journalist Marieke de Bra presented this first documentary on crowdfunding platform Cinecrowd. A filmed self-portrait about her decision to use pole dancing to improve her chances of love, about the missing bond with her parents, and a radical decision. Sexy pole dancing will not increase her chances of love, but she decides to show her vulnerability and strength with a personal choreography at the Dutch pole-dancing championships.
