An experimental dance film merging melancholy with silliness, “Fragile,” by director Kearston Hawkins-Johnson, follows a ballerina through unlikely spaces, reacting unpredictably. Masked with a paper bag, allowing anonymity and protection, the woman dances alone in an abandoned building, and then outside where she’s encircled by skateboarders, or a group bouncing giant exercise balls. At one point, she cracks an egg in her hand and then splits a Kit-Kat bar in two, allusions to the title, and perhaps signaling an interior state of mind. It’s a light & simple student short made with a spontaneous spirit and told through quirky, expressive movements. -KA. Director, DP, Editor, Producer: Kearston Hawkins-Johnson. Starring Brooke Salsman. Producers: Aria Brice and Kelsey Hawkins-Johnson.
