"Images in popular culture still relegate pole dancing to the status of provocative ornament. The perception is not that of an athlete, rather of a calendar girl or sexual fantasy. While I didn’t intend to shame its sexualized form, I wanted to show the sacrifice, commitment, and determination required to become a top-ranked competitive pole dancer.” Writer/Director // Francesco Calabrese DP // Mauro Chiarello Editor // Marcello Sanna Music // Mark Yaeger Pole Dancer // Anna-Maija Nyman VoiceOver & Still Photography // Elis Jolie Sound // Chris Blake @OperaMusic Color // Orash Rahnema @IggyPost Styling // Yosephine Melfi Prod Design // Alice Rocchetta Makeup & Hair // Diana DeVita Production // Section 80 in collaboration with Bravò Ex.
