For Patrick, a tortilla chip started his moment of self-discovery. With exuberant dancing and magical passion he shares his inspiration and invites everyone to participate. Even his mother.
This film explores the concept of spontaneous authenticity and the synopsis of body and soul… through tortilla chips and dance.
Whenever there is the right relationship, in anything, between your mind between your body; between youself and your mother… that’s when something moves, energy is created, the right relationship. That’s dance basically.
“The film is a fresh and surprising celebration of dance: the fun and enthusiasm radiate from there.”

“Shot in what could pass for a prison cell, Momentum, by Boris Seewald, delivers a highly original and side-splitting take on the transformative power of dance, using the filming and editing techniques of MTV-style music videos but with far more subtlety and imagination, and an irresistible streak of lunacy. Starting with a simple but hilarious premise involving a tortilla chip, the film celebrates the magnetic Patrick Hanna, a young dancer with a mischievous twinkle in his eye, who entices his middle-aged mother, played by Shoko Ito, into his surreal dance world.”
One day I will do documentaries like this.
Amazing work by Boris Seewald.
Dance, dance dance.
