Bounce travels in time to when we were kids, summers were long and un-complicated by time. Bounce returns to the middle present, and we hear a middle aged woman catalog the changes and shifts in her body and drives. In the third act, Bounce brings us to the present-present where joy and delight has been found with the power of these changes. Artfully shot in 8mm (underwater) and 16mm, Bounce explores gravity with swimmers, arial and Butoh dancers. Narrated by Joan Schirle.
